Shifty the Clown

Rage, barely suppressed,
Seeps from under gaudy paint
Like damp in old walls.

Night after long night
He plays to the crowd, heart seamed
With deep cracks of hate.

Tonight, his new act.
Carnival mask drops, reveals
Chamber of horrors.

Wow. That was almost painful to read. Nicely (and horribly) drawn. Creepy clowns...
