Two Heads Better than One

I walked the high wire for all to see
There wasn’t even a net ‘neath me
     It gave folks some chills
     I never had spills
Till a twister rolled in; I flew free

The big tent collapsed and caused panic
As I hung in air -- sort of static --
     The crowd had dispersed
     Good grief, how I cursed
As the twister took leave, I grew manic

More than a hundred feet I did fall
Got caught in the fortune teller’s shawl
     Our careers went on
     Though the tent is gone
A two-headed lady we are called

*Entry for David William’s “Circus” contest.

    Hey Carolyn my friend how are you? Hope that your health is better I pray for you each day along with my wife, this poem was as usual very good, struggling to get my book published every time I get close the devil comes up with another block, but I'll keep plucking, going on a radio station in New Hampshire next month, would you like me to say something about your poetry? I will if you allow me, your a great poet in my eyes and the Lords so what do you say? Ok? or not ok. God bless bob

    To maintain the LIMERICK flow through three verses of an interconnected story takes some doing! Well done, Carolyn! Best wishes, Keith
