Coco the clown

Coco the clown

Dressed up in joviality, top to toe looking bemused....baggy breeches, colossal shoes, he keeps the children amused
His job is to entertain in the big top rings... one can watch him at the circus with all the fun that he brings

With his bright red nose & a white painted face... he turns his frown upside down to make him appear a cheerful case.... but he has to pretend he’s always happy coz kiddies want a laughing chappy, he can’t let his mask down.... it would be a disgrace....

As he marches in a circle he is the leader of his band with two large loud cymbals banging in his hand....then he pulls out his water pistol tho it resembles a flower.... squirting all the front row he gives the little’uns a shower.... roll up everybody there’s a circus in your town.... with acrobats, fire-eaters & Coco the clown

HI Jill...I remember going to the circus as a kid and taking my own, and always feeling sorry for the clowns who have to always put on a good show of silliness and being happy, and I am sure they are as human as the rest of us with problems and challenges in life...but give the illusion that they rise above all the things we go through.....and I guess that makes us all have a bit of hope.  I have a sister who has always been afraid of clowns, and ran and hid when my mother had one come to her birthday party as a small child...It was sad...The clown felt really bad that he brought terror to the birthday girl...lol..but the rest of the kids loved him.  ;)  I enjoyed. xo

Hi Jillsbury Doughgirl, 
That was very warm, and nostalgic, and wonderful. Great job!! 
I like how you write about all things. 
I like clowns(I've often been called one, so I think it's a compliment). I like when a thousand of them get out of that little car. It must be so stuffy for them in there before they get out, yet they still have a smile on their faces...it's almost as if the smile is painted on there.

Do English people really say 'reckon'??!! I flabbergasted(dang flabber!). lol. 
I reckon I am, also, but you just put stuff out there about all aspects of life, and some is fun, and some is wonderfully touching, and...sometimes you say reckon...and I like that!! Always keep writing what you think of, because you're great! 

Your friend,

Yes, you do! 
You could write about 'shugs' because I have no idea what they are. 
Are they those chubby, slimy bugs that are out in the rain, and stick to your arm sometimes? 
Just get writing, young lady!
