Circus Freak

Gentlemen! Ladies!
Come one, come all!
The great strip tease
Miss Anxiety
is the bees’ knees!

Watch her shiver and shake
as she falls apart
to the beat of a rapid heart,
her hands quake
but the show is at stake!

Pills for pasties
nothing to hide behind,
see the poet’s unseen side!
Eyes gone a little hazy,
we promise she isn’t crazy.

Everything bared,
teeth included,
be sure to remain seated
the safety is only alluded
to. A most exciting show!
