Big Top Carnival Time

Good evening
Ladies, gentlemen
Start the show
For tonight
A feast for your eyes to see
Like nothing before

Tigers, bears
Your jaws to the ground
More you want
More you'll get
So great your head might explode
You'll be begging more

***By Chris Matt for Nette Onclaud's contest, “Share a Shadorma.”***
