Prologue
Lights.
Applause.
Laughter.
The booming voice echoed. “Ladies and gentlemen”, he announced, “prepare to be amazed, astounded, astonished, and filled with wonder!”
The same tune was always played. The same song was always sung. The same words were always told.
Nothing new. Nothing changed.
One by one, they entertained. One by one, they preformed. One by one, they were subjects to others’ amusement.
Nothing new. Nothing changed.
The time ticked by. One after another they humiliated themselves. One after another they degraded themselves. One after another they were displayed as what they really were.
Freaks.
“Now, my people, you have seen the strangest, you have seen the most frightening, the most disturbing, but we have the best for last!”
The same. Nothing new.
Walking out into the light, blinding, blinking, the same.
Nothing new.
Some gasps. Faces filled with wonder. Suspicion. Intrigue.
Nothing new.
Grasping the item before me, I looked upon them. And the screams began.
Nothing new.
