Sideshow

Updated on May 8, 2016


Welcome to the freak show
Everyone gather round
Watch the jester dance and sway
Never uttering a sound

He leads you on a mystical journey
Never breaking stride
The action breathless, otherworldly
Hold fast and enjoy the ride

Now let me introduce you
My gaggle of guests
To the motliest of crew
Entertaining at your behest

First we have the bearded lady
Never shaved a day in her life
Under her beard it's always shady
No one will take her to wife

Next we have the wolf man
The greatest of freaks is he
The only one left, last of his clan
Remarkable beast, the strongest men flee

Then we have the fire breather
Straight from the depths of Hades
A truly magnificent creature
Assured to frighten the ladies

And of course Joseph Merrick
The elephant man
Sure to make the crowd hysteric
But all according to plan

A.M.

As You Like It.

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." William Shakespeare


The parts we play on the stage of life are varied greatly from one to the other. Some are the jesters who make us laugh and some make us weep. Others are the salt of the earth who work and toil under the hot sun and stinging rain. And still yet others are those who document this comedic tragedy.

But we all have one thing in common, we all play a part. What part do you play?
