creepy clowns, thoughts and a poem by Giselle Marks

creepy-clowns-pic-1

I asked authors concerning  their feelings about the phenomenon of “creepy clowns”

Gina Marks replied

I have no real childhood memories of clowns good or bad. I don’t like them and am suspicious of them because you can’t see their real faces, but they do not terrify me as such. I was terrified as a toddler of a five foot tall rubber Bugs Bunny that a friend of my father’s gave me. I screamed so much they eventually gave it away. So I asked a friend who I know suffers from coulrophobia, (that is fear of clowns, lol.) for her story and combining with the news reports I wrote you this.

Scary Clowns

Performing clowns can be very funny

they caper crazily to earn their money.

The feelings of children are rather mixed,

while others with terror stand transfixed.

Now killer clowns threaten our lives

posing for pictures with sharp knives.

Do they think it is some kind of clever joke?

I fear our sense of humour has gone up in smoke.

Scary clowns, now you take special care

We’ll find you and then you best beware.
