Clowns for the herd
    #9003731 - 09/29/08 06:58 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

wrote this up earlier today while bored in class, just went with some ideas, tried to make some sense in a more different way than I usually write....


Clowns for the herd…

If one were to regard human society as a circus, is it not because of all the clowns? The clowns dance and cheer all around the court, one cannot deny their craftiness. So many people around them cheer them on: “dance for us clown, that we may become happy, together!”  But I find the clowns dance gross. I feel victimized by his jubilance. I cannot decide if it’s him or the cheering crowd that disgusts me most. In fact there is so much cheering going on around here that I am unsure if I have understood what exactly all this clowning around is.

I try to investigate but am disappointed. I cannot put my finger on or empathize with these all too happy circuses. I think maybe I am envious of their collective passion. Ah, but I fancy I have too much taste to take part, let that crowd become infatuated with their silly performers. But from a distance I start to realize the use of their faithful cheering, but wonder who will enjoy these festivals in better taste. A place where the herd doesn’t stray, echo, or dare dance. A place where the dancing comes from deeper within, not from a clown! A place where the trees make better company than most humans! Ah, but there is most definitely clowning around out here, yes but this clowning around is actually more from the heart, more joyous, more free, and more first individual. That, that is the ideal. My only fear is that one day the clown and his crowd will find us out and ruin all of our fun.




any comments would be cool, do I make any sense?

This reminds me of King Lear's the Fool.

I'm not really sure I understand what you're trying to say.  Who are the clowns?  Do you want to join them?

:hotidea:

“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

The clowns represent anyone who tries to teach the masses a purpose for their existence. More specifically a dogma or metaphysical system. What I wrote is related to existentialism. Anyway, just came from the idea that so many of those teachers of dogma often comes off as foolish crowd pleasers. I am just trying to develop some sort of writing style, but I find its extremely hard to be anywhere near original.

Well, it sounds like an issue of 'popular culture vs. high culture'. At any rate, I like your writing style.
