NaPoWriMo #14: Whiteface

What makes the whiteface dress in white?
What reason for his powder bright?
Is it so he is seen in stage?
Is it to highlight his visage?
Or is he a living porcelain doll?
A life sized toy that does pratfalls?
Why is he leader of the clowns?
Why are the Augustes kept down?
Why the spotted onesie suit?
Does he think he’s childlike? Cute?
Why does he grace the show marquee?
A painted man or phantom be?

This week’s challenge: a poem in the form of questions.. (Been traveling all day again… Sorry for lack of reposts.)
