Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Laughter – January 13, 2020 BY-EUGENIAON

My first impulse is to write a poem using the word “laughter”. I do have to first state that one of my favorite things to hear is a baby’s laughter…a sound of the angels!

Laughter 

In the night the circus comes  
 
and with it brings a clown  
 
Don’t let laughter come out  
 
He’ll want to take you down  
 
Into the ring before you  
 
To make you seem a fool  
 
The creepy clown is laughing  
 
You’re acting like a tool.  
 
He thinks he’s being funny  
 
Although that isn’t right  
 
The only way to stop him  
 
Is to go home for the night.

  1. I agree with your statement before your poem – there is nothing more precious than a baby’s laughter. Love your poem – I don’t like clowns whether they are circus clowns or someone attempting to be funny. Thank you so much for participating.

  2. Long ago, I used to have a yarn art portrait of a clown in my room. The moment I had nightmares of a clown hanging out by my bedroom door, I took it down! When I go home for the night, I need a reminder not to take the clown with me! 🙂

    1. I have always been so terrified of clowns. I will have to look back in my blogs, there was a prompt I think for Six Word Saturdays about fear and I wrote something about a clown. They just creep me out.
