SONG OF THE KITCHEN-TABLE LEAR


  
    Each a good egg or an empty shell
    What can these portraits silently tell
    Something of culture or civilization
    These wafer-thin waifs sans fertilization?

    Storm in an eggcup – Lear and his clown –
    One's kept his Motley, one's lost his crown.
    There's drama revealed in all faces and shells
    That's what this Breakfast double act tells.

These eggshell self-portraits of Lear and the Fool were inspired by images of the Clown Egg Collection, which a friend recently sent me. The collection, which records every clown's make-up on an eggshell, is owned by Clowns International and is on display in the Clowns Museum at Wookey Hole Caves near Wells in Somerset. These fragile artefacts are portraits in miniature of famous clowns.

  5. It was also a demand of the union that the government should recognise their performance the same way it punishes teachers, he added. “We thank SED Secretary, School Education Minister and Chief Minister for the initiative.”
