All Is Fair Game At Carnival's Arrival. - Poem by Michael Gale

The carni was arrivaled as all eyes were at a zoo...
Into town from another-before there was not much else to do.
All eyes were a'stared at Fat lady and one attraction called Bearded Woman...
The show did not start until 'round, old noon'n.
The midway was at night so crowded as a forrested tree-
Surrounded by the flowers and it's busied bees.
Tents of shades were crowded, by food eating patrons...
Behind one food counter'd wagon was a woman with lime green hair,
Sprouting a colored kaledescope colored apron, whom served without
a single care.
Children's screams of fright, as tossed aside in a roller coaster's bumped-roughened ride inside...
Had screams echoing across the park,
Wheel's own brakes did screech and spark.
Different colored cotton candy's odor did reach to far and wide...
A night of scares and taunts-from an insulting clown in a water filled
Before the ball to targeted bell sounded, (Bobo) the clown
had grinned to reveal a golden tooth.
Popcorn and vomit were spilled upon the rides...
Buckets of water and hoses were manned to each ride's floors and
The biggest pig in the world, was now put on view...
A dieter's nightmare would this seem, too many pounds, would make Jenny Craig so scream.
Basketballs bounce off orange metal hooped rims...
Money is exchanged-Carni people rig games with bottles and baseballs.
A lot of violence and fights was almost made.
'Hey Rube' was shouted -A call to police was made as played.
Cars each year are broken into and robbed...
The female victims have cried and sobbed.
Amongst the crowds at fairs do paired police walk and patrol...
Sometimes crime and violence, is hard to prevent or control.
