Roll up roll up!
Ladies and Gentleman!
The Circus is your town
you and I and everyone else.
Catch this go!
and take it and run that tight rope
that we call life.
And don’t you worry, I still
have many thrills
and spills as I drop my loads
for your amusement
delectable dalliances with acrobatic
antics and the tears of a clown.
Yes! Send in the Clowns!
Give them a burden or three,
unrequired by my Troupe
for the same lines, be etched upon their skin
under all that pretense and glory.
The Ringmaster beckons us forward,
A masterclass in the survival of
death-defying stunts is about to
erupt from the mouths of babes
and I for one
could do with that life lesson.
And another! Take it! Own it.
I am sick of being the Juggler!
This show has well and truly started
and you, my friend
are the Tamer of Lions.
