Are you a pointer? A giggler?
Do you put on your faux plastic frown?
Head shaker? Face maker?
Is your smartphone recording the “clown”?
YouTube the “nutter”?
A “funny” video?
Let the world enjoy, the High Street attraction.
Do you know of them?
Or care about them?
For you to place ridicule, above your compassion.
They could easily be you,
You, easily them.
A broken world spinning around in your head,
Needing of care
More, the compassion of society instead.
Care for the person inside,
Traversing their mind,
Turning corners and resorting to the dance.
Take your soft hands to theirs,
To impart your care,
To understand, and then ignore their circumstance.
Or yet continue mocking jibe,
Abandon the “clown” again,
Wrest your pride from the mordant laughter.
Why care about wild fools,
And their gesticulant ways.
It’s just the footage for YouTube you’re after.
