Tears of a Clown

imaginarygarden  April is for Fools and Poets  Imagined By Marian
Write about being a fool or being fooled, not being fooled again, or foolin’ around, All Fools’ Day, fool’s gold, foolish behavior, foolish words, fool me twice, you fool!”

He played the fool
the class clown
the court jester
made us laugh
broke the ice
was careful of
others’ hearts
gentle with
delicate things
puppies, kittens, little kids.
Gave hugs and pats on the back…
but he possessed the
saddest eyes I’ve ever seen.

  1. Ah, perhaps that is what made him so compassionate, as well as giving him the urge to help others laugh.
