Captivating Madness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's a captivating madness,
Experienced by one and all!
Captivating with excitement,
Cotton candied and popcorn balled!

There is amusements in the atmosphere.
A circus that delights!
Thrills and chills to goosebump with squeals.
'Free Admission' is the call!

There's nothing left to keep a calm breath...
Not today on this rollercoasting ride!
And the ringmaster confesses,
Those who witness are being blessed.
Since this mess adventured,
Churns to a frenzy...
And must not be stalled.

It's a captivating madness,
Experienced by one and all!
Captivating with excitement,
Cotton candied and popcorn balled!

For anyone in doubt,
Of this craziness coming to an end...
Hold on tight and close your eyes,
There's more attractions
Being prepare...
That have yet to begin!

It's a captivating madness,
Experienced by one and all!
Captivating conscious minds...
With no hint to slow,
Even to a crawl.

Who believed these actions,
Would heal and someday mend!
Not this captivating madness,
We've been addicted to defend!

It's a captivating madness,
Complete with somersaults.
Backflips with closed lips are seen...
And some knocked out by what is viewed,
Are administered smelling salts!

It's a captivating madness...
Deplete of accepting fault!
And those who foresee the future say,
This madness feeds massive assaults.
