Freaks & Animals By Rishloo

Under this canvas he hides a dream

A trick of the type too cheap to be free

makes your burgeoning inquiry

more easily answered

Oh a sight they have come to see

we shan't disappoint, they've paid for a scene

And a scene they shall have indeed

This dark, dark evening.



Join us inside, that's the way here

Come now, just step right-up in line!

It's freaks, fools, and fire!

Come nearer, come closer, it's nearly time!

You there, and you there, come one and all!



It looks better in Red my calico friend

Let us brood on the hue of need

What finds your favor?

No, the show must go on instead

With hundreds of eyes at two to a head

and the blindness is thrice complete

When all stand watching.



Step aside make way for the stars' presence!

Better beware, there's lights and glittering!

Gaze deeper, stare harder, it's nearly time!

You there, and you there, come one and all..



So plain...



So have you ever wondered where were the demons they told us of?

Be patient, they're coming, shortly revealed to you

and I do think you'll find a dead-ringer

much still hides you curious minds

There's no hurry.



Now where are my manners?

Round and around..

Why, I believe they've all arrived..

Out, out, from the wings.



Set all the props in place, lower the lights and wait.

Now, bring them in, let them watch, let the spectacle rise.

Hold your breath, this suspense lead the arrogant dead eyes.

More than them will you spend for the vision of your life.



Let the curtains fall down

Look now, and see, that's quite the motley

disguise you've borrowed.

My friend, it seems quite odd

but you are the show you've paid for!

Step through the mirror and now the circus spins on and on so,

come one, come all, tonight!
