Circus Wars

Lo! The ‘great’ war

between the two

circus companies was

about to commence.

***

The Ringmaster called for

the clowns,

he called for the geeks,

he called for the flying elephants

and

the ferocious lions.

***

“Suit up and arm ye-selves,” He cried.

“We’ll teach those second-rate interlopers!”

***

Several hundred yards away

the other circus was fast asleep.

Unaware of their

impending doom.

***

Cried the Ringmaster,

“Bison Bob’s Wild West Vaudeville & Indian War Battle Reenactment Show,

will rue the day

they ever heard

the name,

Col. Beauregard ‘s Famous Flying Traveling Circus & Side Show Supreme of 1873!

***

At that moment,

the strongman wheeled out

the mighty circus cannon,

and aimed it across the river,

toward the location of the

rival circus.

***

A hush fell among the circus crowd.

Then,

“Fire” Said the Ringmaster.

***

Boom went the cannon!

***

Aaaaaghhhhhhhhhhh! cried the human cannonball.
