Bared And Exposed Only To His Mirror...

notoriety
speaks ill of
the truth

in internalizes
and mimics the truth
to give
the best show for
the audience

nice performance
the audience stands and
claps

the sounds of fame rebounds
in every wall
the praises in bouquets
of assorted flowers

the clown takes off its masks
showing a scarred face
the truth of sorrows

now it is saving itself from
disgrace
goes off the stage
takes the other exit door
and when alone
it laughs the hardest
saying to himself

' how stupid, how foolish
these shallow people are! ! ! '

and so it had chosen
a life all alone
true to himself, bared and
exposed
only to his mirror...
