COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY On A Thursday #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 142 #SYNONYMSONLY

It’s Tuesday, and that means Colleen’s Tanka Challenge! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

Character & Wild

Doll, Clown, Sad, Black And White, Sweet

"What a clown," they say
"Always pulling madcap stunts
Jeez, he makes me laugh."
Though he implores, "Look closer.
Can't you see my hurt inside?"

    Very deep thoughts, Sis! Thank you for mentioning this, within this challenge. Many of well known entertainers in privacy have been very sad. Seems their works gives them compensation to this. Michael
