Circus Life ~~ a Poem for the Tuesday Platfom
Whiled away a day and a half
There in Podunk, Mississippi
I happened upon, magic lure
The circus was in town big time
Big time for the big top right there
Right there in that little town. Clowns!
I always dreamed of meeting one
Now here in Podunk six bold ones
They took me in, a meal then some
I watched their rehearsal, was sold
I would grow up to be a clown
A big nosed clown make people laugh
I could juggle, I showed my stuff
And ride a unicycle too
Can you come with us, we need you
I went that day, performed that night
The crowd laughed and clapped, this young lass
He stole the show that night but then.
The other clowns they cried. Jealous.
Poisoned me. Now I'm side show help

In 'Playing Again' "Words Count with Mama Zen: “Is your life a circus?” (A dangerous thing to ask these days, I know.)"" Mom Zee put a maximum word count of 90 which I did not pick up until I finished writing my 'poem'. I exceed that, my count without the title is 134, but "there is a next time."
