Lion Tamer

Drawing whip,
one hand broad with commanding gesture,
welcome to the circus,
we have so much to show,
so many lives to teach,
and few words we know,
and less hearts that grow,
but come inside,
ye merry makers,
come and view our candid spectacle,
open eyed and tingled ears,
but close your mouth before your soul escapes,
you come from far and wide to see,
you trample here and scamper there,
lips of lies and sleighted hands,
whispered cries- whips and chains,
and bound within the cages there,
lost within the stillborn air,
hearts are dying- spirits wilt,
heads are leaning mind on tilt,
but stand and cheer,
or mock and jeer,
make no mistake the end is near.
