Circus

There is no animal anywhere

that wants to participate

doing tricks and dressing up

how can that be great

 

it condemns a soul to misery

its a punishment in fact

convicted just for being

and they just cannot react

 

in any way unfavourably

for to do this then their path

is laden down with agony

and what is purely wrath

 

trainers really torturing

unthinking foul mouthed slobs

they know how to cause an animal pain

unrelenting yobs

 

they castigate and infuriate

its a flogging that they get

pilloried for nothing

so few of them are let

 

out to roam and feel the soft grass

on their painful feet

they are beaten with long poles

that cut

and painfully unseat

 

the soul urge from the body

everything they do

is shouted down and

given the devil treatment too

 

the gods must spring to action

anubis and his team

the devil spawn is everywhere

there is no time to dream

 

their roots a torn from under them

their families lost and gone

their memories are beaten off

for they are now upon

 

the mortal coil to entertain

the gormless and the louts

the so called circus goers

who come from roundabouts

 

for the burgers and the onions

for the excitement of the ring

but cut through all that decor

its horror that they bring

 

 

the animals are tortured

their lives committed to

moving now from town to town

that what circuses do

 

its chained up in the field closeby

or chained up in a truck

fed on rancid food sometimes

circus life does suck

 

 

 

its easier to give up

do what they make you do

at least you don’t get bull hooked

by, one of the crew

 

beaten scratched or kicked

the torture happens every day

you really cannot beat the charge

or ever get away

 

their faces bear such sadness

their bodies racked with pain

their feet are often swollen

from standing in the rain

 

their legs are sore from being beaten

its hell on earth and they

do whatever they are expected

or else they know they pay

 

its really pandemonium

an abyss of no return

walking through fire hoops

really does concern

 

wild animals for fire demands

a factor of great fear

so standing with fire all around

really it is clear

 

elephants don’t like this

they just go insane

they roll their heads from side to side

and experience such pain

 

a madness does prevail for them

automatons they become

doing what they have to

until their souls are numb

 

circus is an evil place

where animals must try

to entertain the punters

when all the time they cry

 

the excitement that is generated

its cruelty personified

and surely we must call out loudly

there’s no where to hide

 

anubis we must countenance

a spirit to acclaim

a glorification of  tenderness

for they are never the same

 

protection is the light that spills

onto them when they

are falling down and wondering

why they have to pay

 

this is what now happens

broken listless souls

who go from day to day in pain

taking on their roles

 

taking hits from trainers

suffering so much

for  circus life is ugly

and so so out of touch

 

this never is reality

and we who turn up we

must realize the anger and the frustration

that we see

 

for cruelty is everywhere

its a dark place and we should

boycott circuses everywhere

for surely now that would

 

be the only course of action left
