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.
Said 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!“
Then, the strongman wheeled out
the mighty circus cannon, and aimed it
across the river,
toward the location of the
“Fire” Said the Ringmaster.
Boom went the cannon!
Aaaaaghhhhhhhhhhh! cried the human cannonball.
