"Tell all the truth but tell it slant--
Success in Circuit lies . . ."
--by a Romantic poet
"Circuit Lies are Misrepresentations of the Real World--
a world Children need to Know about, Emily."
--by the Realist Poet
No babe asks to be born--
Especially with fiends
Waiting under the bed,
Behind the closet door,
Or down in the cellar
Ready to creep into
Needless nurseries dark.
Dedicated with Respect for All Children Fearful of Bugaboos Unreal and Real
