masked faces paint the truth
oversized shoes and loose suspenders
make me laugh scornfully
not at the clown
but at the people who can’t see through the disguise
it’s a farce
a joke played on the audience
the clown juggles their tears
their fears
their dreams
and laughs mockingly at their refusal to believe
it’s all a joke
clowns everywhere
running the show
sweating under the spotlight
nervous that they’ll be seen for what they really are
i hope so
i truly
hope so
