Ringmaster

22 Aug

 

These are my monkeys

This is my circus

You are the ringmaster

Of this freak show of blame

 

Strung up on the high wire

No safety net

The lion’s mouth a gaping hole

Into an abyss of “I don’t know”

 

The human cannonball

Is no match for the strong man

The dwarf is standing tall

Searching for the monster’s third eye

 

Swallowing swords

Spewing flames

Clowns and jugglers

Popcorn and candy

 

These are my monkeys

This is my circus

You are the ringmaster

Of this freak show of blame
