Halloween Countdown Day 24: Coulrophobia


See all the circus clowns
Dressed in their bright colors
And making their loud sounds

They’re just merry and gay
And wouldn’t hurt a fly
Or so they would portray

But it’s just a disguise
Just a friendly facade
So you’d better get wise

Now just a minute, kind sir
Your soul is in danger
They are quite sinister

For just behind their works
Under all that grease paint
A most vile evil lurks

Clowns are demons most foul
Soul-eaters who devour
But they smile, they don’t growl

People just disappear
Most leaving not a trace
When those clowns come each year

Please, do not scoff so
This is a dire warning!
Something you need to know

Best you don’t come around
When you see the circus

Has just rolled into town

  1. I enjoyed your poem. May I reccomend my NO CLOWNS card game? It is quote cathartic.


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
