A Clown's Disguise: an ode to Robin Williams
A Clown's Disguise (an ode to Robin Williams)
by John Hansen (c) 2014
All the world weeps this day
The King of Clowns has passed away.
He made us laugh as Mork from Ork,
And was master of the witty talk.
Mrs Doubtfire made us smile
Jumanji fed the inner child.
A penguin's voice in Happy Feet,
But the sad 'black dog' he couldn't beat.
As Popeye the Sailor or Peter Pan
We were entertained by this Millennium Man.
Though underneath the joker's grin
Was a trouble soul that burned within.
In serious roles his acting shone,
Like Dead Poets Society and Dreams May Come.
Robin Williams was loved world-wide
But depression racked the man inside.
In ten years time we'll be weeping still
For we never saw that he was Ill.
True sadness showed within his eyes,
But he hid it all..through a clown's disguise.

Many people don't know the value of the plants around them. Do you see a dandelion as a weed spoiling the look of your lawn, or as a wild herb packed with vitamins? Everything in nature has a purpose.
