As clown outfits go,
Chubby's was crappy.
Some material was worn
so thin, as to be see-
through.  Ruffles crinkled,
and his huge-numbered watch
kept slipping off his thin
wrist.  Chubby was unbothered
by people who scoffed, mocked
his demeanor, or thought him
a failure.  Tonight was his
last performance.  Young
children in the audience
still had the ability to be
delighted by Chubby.  He
flexed his gloved fingers,
folded himself in half,
and wiggled muscles
in his jaw.  The kids yelled
for more.  Chubby ended
his career completely happy.
