but he's an impostor.....

If I didn't laugh at myself and defy,
I'd probably cry.
I love to clown around,
especially about a little joy I found.
Maybe it found me,
however having it is the key.

Of all the valuables I possess,
it's the most valuble I guess.
I'm going to hold on to it for dear life,
it helps me handle my misery & strife.
Normally when I've been had,
it helps keep me away from sad,
so I feel more glad.

Glad with a phony feeling,
still it's quite appealing.
You can't fool a real clown,
unless you know why he has a frown.
A real clown knows his job,
he tries to make us laugh and not sob.
I may be a phony clown,
I know I'm dealing with

a real down.

I LOVE this one! Clowns are like most other people but, we have to smile constantly. I went on the stage after my mother died but no one, other than my troupe members, knew; it was hard but it helped. Nothing is as wonderous or heals the soul as the peal of sincere laughter.

From one clown to another,
