Fortune Teller, 1870s

The Circus

read your cards
o, fortune-teller
will the circus
survive
for yet another year …

and she said

new excitement
new perception
wins the world with
brash deceptions
called virtual circuses
and video games

and then she sang

world of sadness
world of shame
hobbling with a Christmas cane
Circus poster
invites one and all
but no one comes.
