Harry was a piebald red and white clown
adorned in tights like a courtyard harlequin,
ready to play the consummate circus buffoon.
Learned in the aged art of prestidigitation,
easily disguised by his flowing black cape.
Quicker than a London mucker's bludgeon.
Insisted on carrying a brassy bludgeon.
Never trusting the other clever clowns.
Clown paint distracts like a matador's cape,
leaving one two-faced like a lying harlequin.
Omnipotent Harry only played the buffoon,
while picking pockets via prestidigitation.
Naturally, most felt Harry a true buffoon.
Buffoons after all, carry brassy bludgeons.
Useless if one exercises prestidigitation.
Fist-fighting with several circus clowns
feverishly finished the hoard of harlequins.
Odd prestidigitation is useless as a cape,
Only because you can't kill with a cape.
Not when you are Harry the old buffoon.
Jest not, those thieving piebald harlequins
easily lifted Harry's loot without bludgeon.
So Harry premeditated murdering clowns
taking bludgeon, ignoring prestidigitation.
Eventually he'd have to use prestidigitation.
Ridiculously easy if one uses a dark cape.
Just in case Harry was suspect to clowns
of not truly being the idiotic foolish buffoon,
kindness would be wielded like a bludgeon
eradicating suspicion like he did harlequins.
Red and black, dead red-black harlequins.
Murderer hiding behind prestidigitation,
ubiquitous, as a bloody mucker's bludgeon.
rapaciously hiding behind the black cape
designed to hide the genius of the Buffoon.
Enlightened revenger of the thieving clown.
Red and black dead
resulted in a
buffoon killing guilty clowns.
