Crocodile Grin

Manitou slides Doppelgänger silhouette Ballet prides Twisted contorted pirouette Pierrot dolls glare twingingly Stare wistfully from shaded mottled space Ventriloquist disgusting tricks From two deceitful Face The magicians hook Stare garishly Whilst he wilfully reels in Audience of ooh faced crowds Doused in doubt, at just whats Happening A rocking horse It squeaks the boards With no child on its Back And forth to kiddie Hell Wooden teeth, a glare, a smile, a crack Puppets is as puppets does Whilst someone cuts the string A slumped doll, hair shorn Skipping rope to swing The troll which lay beneath the bed Fumbling hands to grab small feet Spiders who crawl purposely To join beneath the sheets But worst of all Most worst of all, the dreaded curtain smiles Which changed within a gentle breeze to something thats Most vile
