The clown has great importance. as part of the search for what is laughable and ridiculous in man.

 

 

 

We should put the emphasis on the rediscovery of our own individual clown, the one that has grown-up within us and which society does not allow us to express.

Open-mouthed, with painted smile, the clowns stand in formation,

Constantly they shake their heads in cynical negation,

Notwithstanding players skill the clowns will always win,

They walk free from the courtroom and the cycle starts again.

A clown needn’t be the same out of the ring as he has to be when he’s in it. If you look at photographs of clowns when they’re just being ordinary men, they’ve got quite sad faces.
