If a clown.

I like this poem, not only because its premise hinges on Stephen King’s cultural sensibilities, but also because it asks a very important question:

What could be sadder … than a clown in need of a context?

Yes, there is nothing sadder than a clown searching for a context, and it is especially apparent in today’s world – we have so many people working in jobs that just don’t fit them, either because these people haven’t evolved to meet the needs of this era, or because they were the wrong people for the job from the very beginning.
