Main Attraction

Come one, come all
Move quickly and reserve the best seats
The show is about to begin

The lights go dim, and a hush falls over the crowd
But as the curtains are drawn, a question is raised
A question that provokes an uproar

What is the main attraction
She is a girl
And nothing more

On the contrary, heed these words
Scrutinize her as though she were a freak
And soon enough that is what she will become

Wow1 This is very powerful! This brings me to relate - to the scrutenizers.  I guess that's sad, because it shows how shallow I and others can sometimes be.  I  hope you (or whoever this is about) can find someone who digs beyond common perception of a person and realize who you/they are.  Really strong writing!
