"Freak Show"

A Poem by Zoe Anne

"Freak Show"

Don't look so glum!
Take a seat over there!
Watch! Look! Stare!

C'mon, don't be shy!
Take a look at The Man Fly!
Oh, over there!
Isn't that a scare?

Here comes The Blue Bearded-Lady,
Featuring her little Werewolf Baby!
Watch The Freaks perform,
While the sprinkles outside turn into a storm!

Go ahead, you know you want to!
Laugh! Scream! Mock! Faint, and we'll help you come to!
We don't care what you think!
We are so special that we are probably the missing link!

So, what are you?
Just an ordinary person, who has nothing, but normal things to do?
If you don't appreciate our wonders,
Then, please, go home, and have sweet slumbers.

I could hear so much personality in this just from reading it in my head. It kind of reminded me of Shel Silverstein.

I like to write a lot of horror, poetry, and lyrics. My inspirations are Edgar Allan Poe, Anne Rice, H.P. Lovecraft, and Stephen King. I hope that someday my name will be next to theirs... more..
