A Clown To Entertain You…


I am crude among the artists
Petal fallen from the bloom
Neo-con amongst the Libs
The elephant in the room


With the skeptics I am Jesus
A thorn in both their sides
I am the whore among the Fundies
The beldam with the bride


I am stained among the sainted
On a cross of my own making
A believer with the atheist
A martyr at the staking


I doubt among the certain
My finger’s in the wound
My stammer’s in the speaking
I’m a lyric with no tune


I am the black sheep in the barn
I know where I belong
A clown to entertain you
With a poem and a song
