clowns will not eat you
they will not eat you
just rip out your tongue
and hang you by your hair

This poem was creepy, but i like it. I like this poem because the tone and mood. The tone is creepy, because in lines 4 and 5 it says," Just rip out your tongue/ and hang you by your hair." The mood is scary, because it says," Just rip out your tongue".(4) The only suggestion I have is not repeating they will not eat you.

This poem is quite unique, interesting, and different. I like how you use that picture with all the teeth all over and how you say clowns will not eat you. The ending is scary and violent. This would absolutely make children scared of clowns.
