Some hairy clown in a tutu
stopped by to console
the agitated hippo stuck in the mud

How can one describe that
without seeming absurd?
Certainly some of life’s observations
are best kept impressed on the brain only
paying silent homage
to the appearance of reason and sanity

My brain takes it in
and spurts it out at odd times
Aw, heck!
Life is just silly, sometimes!
