NaPoWriMo #28: Send In

Greatest Show on Earth
Plunged over the past decade
Declining interest
Send in the clowns — please!

On the horizon
A national clown shortage
Old age
Higher standards
Employers align against Krusty
Bozo
And their crimson-nosed colleagues
Send in the clowns — please!

Clowning isn’t
Cool anymore
Clowning is
Then put on the back burner
Kids these days
Thinking about everything other than clowning.
Send in the clowns — please!

The older clowns are passing away
Difficult getting younger people
Is it no longer good enough?
Clowns — please
Clowns — please
Send in the clowns — please!

A poem made of words from a newspaper article! This was culled from a NY Daily News article about a “National Clown Shortage.”
