My life has been a circus tent.
I’m learning how to juggle.
I set up a great big show.
No crowd could burst my bubble.
I’d spin a plate. I’d throw a ball.
I’d run about, AMAZE!
I had the happy crowd abuzz
with each new feat
But, it got harder
and harder to impress.
So many balls and plates
an inevitable mess.
Until balance seemed an impossible circus trick,
and I needed a real-life balancing act.
So, I asked the Ring-leader how it could all be done
and He a-light and full of fun
“just spin one plate.”
