The Greatest Show Unearthed

The Greatest Show Unearthed

A Poem by SpeakToMeTheTruth

Welcome to the dark carnival brother

Ladies and gentlemen
Boys and ghouls
Step right up
Behind this curtain lies a ghastly concoction
Of delight, horror, fantasy and terror
Your every wish is our command
Your every whimsical desire brought to life.
But I'm warning you, there's always a price
Welcome to the greatest show unearthed
The dark carnival is in town
You'd better be ready
Just follow the parade
Of dancing skeletons
Full of ghoulish delights
Around every corner
Don't tell your parents you're here
They will soon be mourners
Welcome to the lower birth
The greatest show unearthed
We appear without a sound
The darkest show around
We will leave you in a daze
Madness, murder, dismay
We will disappear at night
With blood on the concrete
I will be your ticket taker
Come inside, it's a dream
Enter the fun house of mirrors
No one can hear you scream
We can supply anything
That your heart desires
But the consequences
Will surely be dire
Welcome to the lower birth
The greatest show unearthed
We appear without a soun

I enjoyed reading this poem. It was very descriptive, and had great use of metaphors. However, you might consider checking for misspelled words.

I really love this! I could picture a man in a suit saying this outside of a "haunted house of horrors" in a theme park. Very nicely done!

I need another story Something to get off my chest My life gets kinda boring Need something that I can confess Til' all my sleeves are stained red From all the truth that I've said Come by it ho.. more..
