Oversized Pants This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I wish I could be in the circus, so that I could wear funny clothes,
With oversized pants, I'd exude romance, and people would adore my red nose,
Oh, I would love to be in the circus,
I would walk on a tightrope,
My feet twist and turn, I'd get awful
rope burn, but I'd be more famous
than the Pope,
My heart's desire is to be in the circus,
I would dance and play all the day,
I'd have a goofy smile, and at least for a while, in a happy mood I would stay,
If I could only be in the circus, I would make people laugh till they cried,
Not the slightest disgrace would cross my face as I threw tomatoes and pies,
But alas, I cannot be in the circus; I lack
humor or talent on stage,
In my mind I may dream of a circus theme, but the closest I'll get is this page.
