Domhnall, The Ruler of the World

12 Days of Halloween 2016  (4)
“Hubba, hubba, hubba! Money, money, money! Who do you trust?” -the Joker

He wasn’t your typical killer clown
more of a Red Skelton tinge
white around the eyes
fly-away hair
and a madman drive for revenge

The whole world was out to get him
but he had no shortage of henchmen
disgruntled misfits feeding on power
in their eyes he was the man of the hour

Future is a mystery
no plans or preparation
improvisation is his game
Past is less history,
more nostalgia for things
that may have never been

His enemies abound
but he’ll take them out
one by one
He holds the cards
and the deck is stacked
and he has a great
novelty gun*

Some say he’s a villain
he sees a savior in the mirror
Clown Prince of Crime
America’s greatest jeerer

*baillier la trompe "blow the trumpet" as "act the fool"
