Morning Song of a Thousand Clowns


Still from A Thousand Clowns, 1965

Morning Song by Alan Dugan

Look, it's morning and a little water gurgles in the tap.
I wake up waiting, because it's Sunday, and turn twice more
than usual in bed, before I rise to cereal and comic strips.
I have risen to the morning danger and feel proud,
and after shaving off the night's disguises, after searching
close to the bone for blood, and finding only a little,
I shall walk out bravely into the daily accident.
