To the clown

who paints his brow

with white and red

To entice the young ones

and fill them with dread...

he mocks the world

and is consumed with hate

for his life is bitter

laughter is now an escape

But laugh all you can

as this is your end

for the clown is not evil

he is just a sad man

He is filled with a darkness

that envelopes the soul

and crafts the thoughts

Of the mind as a whole

The mire that was once

a brain in his head

is no longer an organ

But an effigy instead

an outcome of a life

that destroyed his being

from the outside in

without anyone seeing.
