I challange you great audience to sit and chill

for entertainment folds the worlds tears employed

within reflections shadow spinning trace from Poi.

I dare not make mistake, mortal the path of schill

its hard enough to sway critics imposing will

pressing before myself encouragement deployed

with satire's sickles juggling in threes, avoid

barely, with skill,  The volunteer I nearly kill.

Three personalities a genious or insane

a song a dance performing humble moments cant

my fruitful labours palpable and mute in vain?

or has the audience been good enough to chant

to find within me gold again life can sustain

this value of performers rhyme within a hat!
