Hidden pain

I had a student the other day

One look and I knew his pain

It was hidden in what he did not say

He did not greet me normally

Yet laugh loud with his friends

A loud obnoxious tra-de-lee

He entered class with excess vigor

Swore a lot

But showed no academic rigor

As a class clown he was quite funny

However I knew his clowning hid

That his life was far from sunny
