bored by freaks

A Poem by Joyce S. Greene
"

under the big top . . .

"




bored by freaks
and the sword swallower
giddy boys
crawl beneath the tent
to see the dancing girls

i like this poem Its simplistic, yes reveals the human male nature of discovery of ones self during the time when those feeling awaken toward a girl. Also it could be taken in another manner how people are attracted by the bizarre and cant become desensitized by the "Freakish" All in all this is a reflective piece and definitely one to ponder.

Ha- under the big top takes on a new meaning. There are just some imperatives that cannot be denied. A nicely twisted poem.
