Insane costumes,

Cartoon hair,

Circus is that right there,

Flashing lights,

Screaming kids,

Surely this is where the magic is.

Acrobats flying,

Tame tiger,

The ringmaster is holding the ring of fire.



Glowing eyes,

What is this?

Says those courageous children of his,

This is the greatest show on Earth.


Clowns collide,

Acrobats fall,

The magic is so quickly gone.

It was a dream,

Now it is a nightmare!

What will you chose?

Circus dreams or circus nightmares?

  1. I feel the same way about circuses! They’re so surreal I can never tell if they’re scary or amazing. The rhymes worked really well ^_^ Thanks for sharing!
