my eyes see only clowns

the circus is in town

it comes around every now and then

there are two shows this year

and you can catch them on TV

and tune in until the end

the elephant and donkey do great tricks

they make their trainers proud

just enough to cloud your eyes

as it always is, it’ll be too late

once you realize

that there are flies swarming

over the mountains of shit

both animals left us with
