Above the Circus

At DVerse today, we are visiting the circus.

In one ring are the lions

And the lion-tamers,

The second ring is housing

The acrobats that

Contort themselves into pretzels,

And do tricks just to please

The crowd.

The third ring contains the

Elephants, with gentle and sad eyes.

And lastly, above all this,

Above the three-ring circus,

Is someone balancing expertly

On a tightrope, yet with a net

Capable of catching.


I am the tightrope-walker.
