As the circus tent went up in flames,

the smoke rose up above

the hippos boiling in their vats,

the screeching of a dove

 

the ringmaster, he screamed and screamed

his coat-tails all aflame

the clowns all fled their tiny car

and saved the bearded dame

 

but in the horror and the fright

my focus did not stray

poor hippos boiling in their vats

still haunts me to this day
