Wallace Dean LaBenne

Display The Clown

Professor, therapist, author and poet.

Get rid of past conformance.
Display the clown within.
The funny side performance lies just below your skin.

Escape from past protocol.
Display the clown set free.
Shout a slapstick cattle call for a laugh jamboree.

Dispose of past discomfort.
Display the clown at ease.
Let facial gestures contort as you start out to tease.

Throw away past sequester.
Display the clown inside.
Stand up as the court jester with silly gags in pride.

Abandon past restriction.
Display the clown of glee.
Present a grand depiction of complete comedy.

Unload any past baggage.
Display the clown within.
See that the humorist sage lies just below your skin.
