Beautiful smart fun

A circus tent filled with dreams of flight

Spectacles of sound and light

Death defying feats and fire

Dreams and reality held between a tight wire.

Now antiques to the beautiful mind

Where we find them as freak shows online,

Yet to a world that's seen and done it all

The modern mind still has withdrawals

For the fun of near death and danger

Risked up close on a stranger.

Though slowly as the dinosaurs they vanish

All accept for a few who ravage

The pocket books of those who dare the street

For here such entertainers meet

The final calling for performance artness

Clap and cheer for like fairies

In Forgotten they will get buried

Beneath the modern technological darkness.
