What Is Life?

What is life on the way

Is it a thing that keeps you down

Where it's job is to make you frown

Is it a thing that makes you look like a clown

Making those around you act like you don't belong in town

Is it a burden that you always need to wear that gown

To hide the look that people call run-down

Is it anything more than just a noun

Or it is something you'd rather not have around
