The Freakshow performed by Calum Carlyle


The Freakshow

the lesson ends
the lunch bell goes
bent & mishapen
I hug the shadows
the 2nd floor corridor
I dare not go
theyre hunting for
the Creatures
of the Freakshow

sometimes I picture
my birth, the pain
my fathers revulsion
my mothers shame
their tears their guilt
their big mistake
“we'll act like nothings wrong
for the poor childs sake!”

& they hid it from me
for most of my youth
till I came to this school
kids tell you the truth!

Miss caught me
daydreaming in D.T.
“You wont make a living
from that ,young lady!
What will you do
when you leave school eh?"
Im joining the circus Miss
I dont have a say.
“Oh! so a budding
lion tamer are we?”
no I'm bound for the Freakshow
my futures been decided for me
