Thinking of Clowns

That clown also smells like moth balls.
In my little town,
we had a little clown
that would appear
only once a year
for an annual event,
a carnival on the square,
Not only did he scare me well,
he had that moth ball smell!
He must have kept that clown suit
in a closet for all the year
So now when I smell mothballs,
I think of clown and beer.
I suspected that he played Santa, too


This poem originated from a comment I made on The Muscleheaded Blog .

  2. HA! ๐Ÿ˜€ Good one, OC! I love it! ๐Ÿ˜›
    I guess the dude could use the red nose for both Mr. Clown and Santy Claus. ๐Ÿ˜›
    Wonder if anyone under 50 knows what a moth ball is?!?!
    I’m weird…I’ve always like clowns. Except the one on the TV show American Horror Story: Freak Show. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hahaha! Red noses for both!
      No, no one but us use them and the ones we remember were probably Grandma’s ๐Ÿ˜›
      Well, our clown and Santy sort resembled Billy Bob Thornton, if you ever saw his Santa Claus movie he made a few years ago. Hahaha!
