The Bryan Poem

When a clown walks in common clothing

he is dignified in a touching way

it is not in the riches he wears

but in the things you hear him say

his manner with the ones he loves

reveals depths beyond shallow laughter

for it is the richness of honesty

which is what this clown is after.

do not think to judge him

by the grinning face he shows

judge it by the subtle trace

of what that humor knows
