Circus of Life

spotlights on…
welcome to the circus!

jugglers,
fighters,
animals,
imposters –
we have them all!

are you so very sure
you are still
part of the audience?
munching popcorn,
pointing your finger,
staring
in admiration or disgust?

check again…
you might already
be wearing
make-up, fur or gloves.
