Feeding Frenzy

Feeding Frenzy

A Poem by J Todd Underhill



The circus comes to town with a rumble and a roar.
The trumpets blare and the drums all beat.
People now consumeristic sheeple just like before.
The Ring master prodding them to make them bleat.

The parade gathers the crowd and draws them in;
Elephants, Bears, Lions and of course giraffes.
Fathers and mothers, boys and girls with delighted grin.
Then the clowns bring them to outright laughs.

A day or two of delight distraction for the marks.
As the carneys pick their pocket and rob them clean.
Merely blood in the water for all of the hungry sharks,
Causing a feeding frenzy like you have never seen.

The tents come down and they get packed away;
As the Ringmaster announces for all to hear.
"Do not key or worry my friends," he does say
We will see you again same time next year."
