MIDDAY POETRY – ‘No Clown Circus’

Grinding my teeth
Holding my fists
Clenching my jaw
What is it worth

Having read news
Seeing what is there
Circus without a Clown
Erected its Chapito in our town

Those in charge of its promotion
Now highlighting skills of acrobats
Illusionists on the side of the podium
Mesmerizing all with sleight of hand

Many crafty tricks with magical tactics
Attendees bought tickets to the delusions
Shows suited only for the adult participant
Children not allowed pass the stall with ice

No red nosed Clown tripping on his feet
Makeup mess on their face with a painted smile
Behaving erratically like a Bull in a China shop
Clowns no longer invited to their own show

Sad sight at the end of the premiere
Sitting in their seats bewildered audience
Melted ice cream and popcorn filled belly
No emotions left brain stopped its function

Overrated performance due no refunds
