the mummers dance
parade and juggle
promise cotton candy, laughter
and the sheep nod in agreement.
a couple of years later
the sheep realize
they never got
the cotton candy
and they didn’t laugh
as much as well.
but of course,
the next mummer’s show
has been announced already…
so the sheep wait,
anticipating ~
their mouths already watering
thinking of cotton candy,
their lips already twitching
expecting promised laughter.
