I watch the clowns
having a grand time
clowning around,
strutting about like drunken kings
with their ridiculous antics.
And I hear their rambling babbling
(not exactly listening)
which is rather disconcerting.

But I am not laughing,
not even smiling.
I find it all nauseating
and makes me wonder
whether we do deserve
these insulting inanities
dished out by these
clownish monstrosities.
