Here come the clowns

This was hard for me to write but I hope you like it.

The benches are packed

Excitement fills the air
The Ringmasters mighty whip cracks
The children turn to stare
Towards the curtains hanging down
HONK HONK HONK
Here come the clowns

Juggling
Tumbling
Rolly poleys
Popcorn forgotten
So are the lollies
One throws water on another ones face
He wipes it off and gets pie in its place

Cartwheels
Somersaults
They walk on their hands
The children meanwhile in the stands
Fill the Big Top with the sound of their laugh
How do so many fit in a tiny blue car?

Squirting flowers trick the kids
Contortionist clowns close the lids
On their tiny boxes here within
The Circus Masters magical ring

Now long faces bottom lips droop down
As HONK HONK HONK
There go the clowns

    1. Hi, I’m sorry I didn’t reply sooner, I use my phone and missed the notification.
      Thank you very much for your kind words. Here come the clowns is not the sort of thing I’d usually write so I am doubly glad you enjoyed it 🙂
      Thank you.

    1. Oh wow! Thank you so much for your kind words.
      I’ve been writing and hiding y work for over 20 years until just recently.
      I’m still unsure if sharing what I do is the right thing or not but reading that gives me a massive confidence boost.
      Thank you very much 🙂🙂

      1. I’m so pleased I boosted your confidence, that has made my day! I find blogging so liberating!!! I write down things I wouldn’t ever say in real life, and talk about issues that have haunted me. But since doing this, I honestly feel free. I write some utter Bollox too don’t get me wrong 😂 but it is an amazing feeling letting it all out! Xxx
