Wise Clown

Some exist a wise clown,

dwelling peacefully in

the grim garbs of a jester.

Sprouting often exquisite pearls,

of wisdom here and there;

somewhere in between the

words that men consider banal.

While few exist intellectual

suffering peevishly in the

golden robe of a wise man.

Shackled enslaved by their

pretentiousness, declined and despised

by their intellect. Banished and

forever cursed to measure each word

with someone’s rhyme and meter.

    1. True that, we do have many clowns in the political circus, what a spectacle they put up!

    1. Inspiration for this came from Jesters and Clowns in Shakespearean plays who often were the voice of truth, agree totally that stands-ups deliver the harshest truth. Both comedians and satirists are pivotal for any healthy society.

      1. Yes so our modern day comedians are like jesters… not only for comic relief but for blurting out truths. Shakespearean jesters indeed are amazing and complex characters!
