Watching the clowns

for E H with thanks

"Hear the clowns' music!"
"The sensation of ages!"

"How they juggle the rings!"
"The sensation of being!"

"How they fall in formation!"
"The reflex of senses!"

All clowns want to play
More than a fiddle of notes

But they play what they can
Having regard to the Zeitgeist;

Those clocks on their chains
Are the locks on their cages

And the lions
are waiting outside.


  1. I like the grandiosity of has some echoes.

  2. Susan, thank you and pleased you enjoyed it.
