Join my circus.
Watch the cruel ring master
carelessly throw his whip about.
Laugh at the dog faced boy
or at the hunchback.
It's all a freakish game.
And you're here for the rides.
Swallowing swords may astound you.
And the headless chickens
may make you faint.
But here, we conquer the impossible
by frightening the proud
and torturing the helpless
and humiliating those who know no other.
Join my circus,
and watch me walk the high wire.
Watch me fall
