No Clowns Allowed



I don’t like clowns.

Don’t care for them.

Pass on by grease paint.

Pass on by fuzzy wigged one.


Don’t like clowns.

Not even a little bit.

Pass on IT clown and Gacey.

Pass on Shriner and mime.


Don’t like clowns.

Not funny nor cute.

Pass on by baggy pants.

Pass on by big bad shoes.


Don’t like clowns.

Creepy false faces.

Hidden behind drawn tears.

Hidden behind painted smiles.


Don’t like clowns.

Dislike almost every kind.

Two exceptions are allowed.

All others git yerselves gone.


I love two clowns.

Only two, rare and true.

Rodeo clowns of daring do.

My sweet son, having fun.


I really and truly do not like clowns. This amuses my husband to no end, especially when coupled with my distaste for closet doors and the possibility of clowns lurking within said closet behind said hated doors.  I admire and respect aboriginal sacred clowns, court jesters, rodeo clowns and adore it when my son dressed up as one a while back.  All others need not apply. You who are clowns, it isn’t anything personal, I just don’t like false faces and trickery and that sort of clowning around.  Blame bad guys and horror writers and a nasty trickster when I was young for my dislike of your kind.  Playing at With Real Toads today.

    I love this, Shanyn, and of course your dislike of clowns couldn’t extend to your own sweet son!
    I can understand the closet door part, too, although I have learned to love them, and I close them whenever my husband leaves them open!

    I really was not aware so many people did not like clowns! (I like your exceptions!) Guess I have not seen enough to have a feeling about them one way or another.

    Sad, you don’t like them…I have only met one person who didn’t like them…had a full fledged panic attack about the idea of it….
    I blame horror movies…
    Well done Shanyn!
