The Clown Cried - Poem by Thad Geer

The clown cried today,
In the fat lady’s arms he cried.

Folds of fat, a womb for a cold hard world.

Shivering and shaking his cries muffled by the towering tent,
and the astonished mutterings of a shocked crowd.

His son, flying so high fearless and free,
Now a broken body on the ground,

Blood and bones mixed with popcorn and elephant waste.

The clown cried today,
In the fat lady's arms he cried.
