Circus Insanity

Deutsch: Circus Voyage 2010 in Dresden

There are so many animals,
I’ve beasts within my mind.

Elephants are stomping loudly
and lacking all restraint.
A raging lion rounds the ring;
The tiger, barely tame.

But monkeys driving tiny cars
can make me laugh aloud.
And bears in tutus, dancing tall,
like teasing out a smile.

Though life is like the circus show,
with so much going on,
remember, I am in control,
the master of the ring.


This poem took many forms and iterations. I fear it may never be complete, so I snatched it midstream and threw it out to the world. It was written for the Poetic Asides “circus” prompt.
