CROWNS AND CLOWNS

Now that there are adulterations of clowns
…in the prestigious group of crowns
This word needs to get to towns
So, in knowing differences, ups won’t turn downs

II
If they use no power
…to shower
…and get confidences to cower
If they use no prestige as plugs
…to harvest unwilling hugs
If they use no fame
…to tame
…and heartlessly try to shame
If they use no filthy forces
…to act like cruel bosses
Then they are real crowns and not cloned clowns

III
It is laughable
How real regals are affable
As counterfeited ones act wolves
…hoping all else turn sheep
…or shy doves
…to feed their hunger to sleep
It is sickening
…that mere weak stones act prized in sale
…when real diamonds silently sail
…on humility’s hail
It is hard to watch vultures wear crowns
…in the gowns of rotten clowns
When eagles soar in to-die-for personalities
…even among fowls
It is sad
…when the world slaps
…with an anti-climax
…at the beginning of its classy story
Where many eyes seek
…crowns
…and painfully find them hidden
…under many clowns

IV
Discernment is a necessary tool
…in spotting fools
…posing to buy your trust
…to turn you into a bull
