A Candy Apple Autopsy

Dissecting the spectacle
limbless woman with tentacles
contortionists jump on trampolines
masturbating in your wet dreams

Clowns perform, drunk with sorrow
fortunes read, no more tomorrow’s
freaks shock as you watch in awe
kids frightened running towards the door

Vomited up food after some rides
sawdust, lysol, you feel like your gonna die
at last, the show is about to begin
large audience, the lights turned dim

Animals dance, balance, and sway
lion tamer controls, keeping them at bay
cigar tossed as a fire broke out
animals burning, people scream & shout

The fire raged, burning through the canvas
carnival had one more night in the state of Kansas
packing up early, many animals died
some smothered to death, others were deep fried

A candy apple autopsy was performed
here's what the pathologist found
sugary apple, tooth decay
next stop maybe near your town.
