For Blueridge Boomer who has pretty clown fish in her entry today:
What tickles our funny bone and makes us giggle, makes us jump up and down even wiggle.
What has unmatched clothes so very bright, oversized shoes that don't fit quite right.
Big red circles puffing their cheeks. Toys in their pockets pull out to squeak.
Suspenders holding up their baggy pants, as all around the people they sing and dance.
Unruly hair under a silly hat, they sneak up from behind to give your shoulder a pat.
They can pull a trick as fast as a flash, then to the next person they make a dash.
Up and down a parade route they tease and skip. People saying they are silly they don't give a flip.
A circus can be their job, no nine to five. So bring out the children the clowns are about to arrive.
