They Are Following Me Again
They are following me again she told the fat man.
He laughed and she hated him for it.
Didn’t anyone else see the Jack-o-Lantern brigade?
Didn’t they hear them snickering?
Next she spoke to the bearded lady.
Why are you so paranoid? Bearded Lady asked her.
Slammed the door in her face.
They crept closer, she could feel their breath on her neck.
She was terrified.
Even the elephants thought she was a nut case.
Ignoring her pleas for protection.
Circus girl disappeared that night
Never to be seen again.
No one suspected the Jack-0-lantern brigade
