Fast Day 364 June 7 2014 Circus Comes To Town

Circus Comes To Town

my mother name, she was Dorothea
and her sister was Praxides,
and my father no one know,
or maybe it was Eber Durham who
owned the bee gums down the road.
I had no name
an I don’t want none

This is the time of uproars and clashes –
and the circus comes to town,
and there’s an elephant I don’t wanna see!
the fights of roustabouts and clowns!
Don' wanna see!
Don' wanna see!
after I die shall I live
in a marble kenoptaph eye
and everything I'll see.
