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.
