The Carnival

Another day…a different town
the never ending path…
It’s time to hoist the tents again
and make the people laugh…

Crank the music up my boys
make haste, they’ll soon be here!…
Let’s give them all a real fine show
they’ll talk about all year…

Everyone get ready now
we’re bout to let em in…
Power up the Ferris wheel
and let the rides begin…

Cotton candy step right up
the best you've ever had...
Caramel apples everyone
they’ll make your stomach glad…

Come and see the Siamese twins
for just a dollar more…
The ten foot giant alien
is just beyond this door…

Toss the rings and win a bear
you’ll make your girlfriend proud…
The people in the haunted house
they’re screaming very loud...

One by one they all go home
with smiles upon their face...
Tomorrow we’ll begin again
then soon, another place...

    Love carnivals and you brought me there tonight with every step of the way. Your descriptions are perfectly penned, not a fragment missing. Another masterpiece my friend. You are admirable!

    Step right up, and don't be shy.. because you can't touch the merchandise. She'll give you every pennies worth but it will cost you a dollar first! LOL, brought to mind a song .. thats all said and done. Really nice flow to this. You did an excellent job. It reads very carney like :) Good work Jon! Cindy

    Excellent carnival mood setter here. They sure do move around a lot but leave with smiles on our faces. I really miss my youth and going to them.
