Your poem brings some interesting points to mind. My one son hated them! That was a very sad case, where that evil man dressed up to catch his victims.

    Hi Curly Girly. He was a vile and vicious sicko. Kids usually are afraid of clowns and parents push them forward to meet the clown. Scares them half to death.

I'm glad you addressed the fear some people have of clowns; I think it may be more people than we know. Reminding us of bully's who did dirty tricks and then said 'I was just clowning around'. Yeah, they are out there alright.

    Wow, thank you Quillian. I think you are right about that. Beware of someone who smiles, does dirty deeds, and hides behind a mask.

Oh, I happen to adore clowns. Pennywise, from the Stephen King novel, "IT!" is my ultimate favorite clown. But, there's Bozo the clown, The great Red Skelton did a clown routine...too many to list. So, since you don't like clowns, you're most likely going to loathe my review. But, that's okay. As you so eloquently stated in your poem;

Aiming to amuse, but annoying at best
If YOU think them comical, then be my guest

    Hi Dean, scary. But I figured with your penchant for the dark side you'd like them.

A very heart-felt expression of how many feel, and a pretty in-depth discussion of why. I myself can take or leave them. I quite like mimes. I hate slapstick comedy, and the circus clowns themselves have always seemed sad rather than funny.

    Thank you for your kind review. Children especially are fearful of clowns and parents push their kids toward these people. Yikes!

This was a very different take on clowns. Very interesting. You are right, we don't know who they are. Well written and thought out. Your rhyming was consistent and the message of this poem was clear.

    Thank you, in777. Thank you for your thoughtful review. Every child I know is scared witless of clowns. Instinctively they know clowns are not what they seem. I guess as adults, we are fooled by the package.

This poem was fantastic. You chose your subject, then homed in on it with words that described it in your own vision. It was easy to read and understand. And, I could relate to your descriptions very well. I found no errors. It was an enjoyable read though. It was excellent in my opinion.

Always with respect,

This is good.
I'm unsure if I should be laughing or crying.
You have nice imagery and metaphor.
Thanks for sharing

You have certainly personified the ghastly fear many folks have of clowns in this piece. It is very well written and quite the opposite kind of approach the other entries have taken - kudos and points for having the internal fortitude to march to your own special drummer. I wish you all the best in the contest.
