Laughing, joking,
New ways to play,
Act the fool.
Stunts always bring out
The best laughs,
Stunts lead to pain,
But it's not
The torturous pain
That lays deep inside,
Buried deep so as not to slip out

Amongst one's peers.

Excellent, excellent poem penned on the pathetic life of JOKER; full of life busy to make fun and to entertain others but it's true that the life of clown is very melancholic more than the lost of beloved; the poet very acquisitively crafted the life of clown......congrats for being this beautiful poem as POD.......it really deserves 10+
