arbitrary stuff that comes to mind: whenever I feel like thinking aloud

Look at the Clown …

Look at the Clown
Tumbling his balls
You don’t see his heart
How loudly it calls

He smiles cos’ he’s happy
And a little bit vain
It keeps him from going
Entirely insane

And his Heart?
Well its given
And given to you
Now isn’t that interesting,
Crazy mad thing to do?
