Under the circus tent
with the three rings
on the one left hand
the women in the pit of sand,
calls for the elephants and lions to sound their calls.
The orchestra sounds outside the lines.
They must be outside their minds,
with the banana yellow sneakers.
what went wrong with their lives?
Their hair is red, and turning grey,
and they seem to not have much left to say,
but then again, with a mouth full of fire, who would?
They sound just like they should.
