Make Your Own Circus
For sale! A bargain! A circus tent!
You’ll find that it’s really money well spent.
It has an arena and one thousand chairs,
The overall floor space is fifty-one squares.
It’s as high as it’s wide,
But now empty inside…
I was a ringmaster,
I was a clown,
I walked the tightrope,
I swung upside down,
While riding a unicycle I juggled ten balls;
It was fun!
It was life! Oh I had a ball!
The ups and the downs; the highs and the lows,
But now it is time- I take my repose.
I start a fresh role; a chapter that’s new-
I recall my experiences and tell them to you.
So what do you say – a bargain or no?
I bought this canvas a long time ago.
So if you are keen this tent is for you –
Sometimes there’ll be cheers; sometimes there’ll be boos.
