The Clown Comes Home To Weep




The clown was crying today
but no one saw him do so
That's not how people knew him
His laughter was what made him glow

His tricks made people smile
His dancing made people cheer
His jokes made people holler
Again and again, they wanted to hear

But tonight the clown was somber
His joy pulled out of his heart
A sad moment was before him
His heart was ripped apart

He does not wish to do tricks
nor does he want to dance around
He does not wish to tell jokes
This quiet night, tears are all that's abound
