seó bóthair

did you hear the calliope

smell cotton candy spun

see wicked clowns and tigers

blood drying in the sun

kiss the bearded lady

waltz the lizard girl

hear elephants screaming

see the gypsies twirl

smoke under a laughing moon

the carny’s toothless grin

fat lady crushed a midget

only one sad siamese twin

it’s no carnival

from lands far away

it lives inside my twisted

a new show every day
