The Circus is Not Coming to Town
Something unfortunate will be happening in May.
The Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus is going away.
It has been the "Greatest Show on Earth" for 146 years.
A great number of fans very well may be shedding tears.
All the elephants, lions, tigers, and clowns,
along with acrobats, and trapeze artists will not be touring towns.
Costs have risen, and attendance figures have declined.
Profits apparently are harder to find.
They say all good things can never last.
The famous circus will become a thing of the past.
