Clown In Waiting


Everyone has a funny story
that has happen to them.
I have quite a few
which makes me a clown in waiting.

At the time they were not funny,
however looking back now
the embarrassment has gone
and years have passed.

You think why did I do that?
It was probably immaturity
or being over zealous
that those silly mistakes were made.

Now as you sit down with friends
and talk about years gone by.
You recall these funny stories,
giving everyone a damn good laugh.

You smile to yourself,
hoping you don’t make mistakes like that again.
You know you will
as you are a clown in waiting.
