COTTON CANDY CLOWN – WELCOME TO THE CIRCUS

See my painted smile … I haven’t learned to frown … I’m the wonder of your circus … I’m your cotton candy clown … When the shows are all over… and the ringmaster is spent … all the makeup comes off… And my real life begins … My face in the mirror… See the bills are all due …” I’m sick of this red nose and I hate these big shoes”… As the tents are erected … In a new town to play … I say to myself… It’s just another day … Applaud my painted smile … I couldn’t fake a frown … I’m the wonder of your circus … I’m your cotton candy clown … Frank … Original handwritten poem, graphic art by Grant Bateman of New Zealand …
