Headline Poem 7/6/14 -- Ring Masters

There is a ballot measure regarding the small town of Norco, Ca. Its residents are making efforts to stop future building. I thought of a circus, and wrote this. 

Ring Masters

Ring masters 
Twirl us through 
circus acts
In order to
what we already know. 
In the name of show. 

The big top controls 
the little people, 
   (and the ring master
  who will pay a pretty cent 
To see 
  what they want (us) to see, 
The rest. 

Stop building
Glorified versions
and put the 
animals to bed.
