The Circus.

More than a life-time in search of the Light.
This circus parades a riotous host
battling heaven's space ignoring the plight
of a crucified and ghastly ghost.

Shadows overturned, each variation
opens dilemmas diverting the course
of life's eternal torment where the source
weeps. Darkness magnifies a projection

of monstrosities. I stand and listen.
The Light vibrates with no end to the fun.
Images dilate as beliefs hasten

to relative glory. This world's poor sods
worship prophets, not deeds. The time has come,
out of love for the Light, to change the gods.
