When Mimes Attack

by Bruce McGuffin

“Police are responding to an unconfirmed report of a mime assaulting passers-by.”

He hunts in the square, on the street, in the park,
We don’t know who he is, but he’s one scary clown.
If you watch him perform you could be the next mark
Of this mime spreading chaos and mayhem downtown.
If selected you’re doomed to your hideous fate,
No you won’t hear him coming until it’s too late.
