The Broken Healer

by Marc Grimaldi

In all my years as a psychiatrist, I've never seen a sadder disposition.

There was only one cure for this grave depression!

I blurted out, "You're in luck, I hear Spiro the Clown is in town!"

Lifting his chin off his chest, the patient responded...

"I am Spiro the clown."
