Funny hat, stripy trousers, big shoes and a coloured wig this is no ordinary gig. This is the clown who runs up and down face painted white like the poor devil has had a fright. Sad face highlighted in red and those big eyes that some people despise.
Juggling with water and doing silly tricks, riding a bike over imaginary sticks and falling down because he is a clown. Children laugh and get a bath when the bucket of water is tipped on them. Now some hate the clown, it gets them down when they know the circus is in town. Some people get scared and start to frown, don’t worry it’s only a clown.
