Clowns & Sideshow Freaks

~ Corine Fairbanks

Clowns
Little one, big ones
Skinny ones, fat ones
Dressed up 
And booted up, as big bully bitches.

Cackling obscenities
They strut through the barracks
Hands on tazers
Beady eyed sharks
Looking for tasty treats-
It’s the message not the meal
Examples
Minimum security samples
Fingering
Potential problems
And spanking the line.

“Don’t like it? 
But this is what you signed up for!”

Big top madness, parades of shady characters
Prancing by
Complete with side show freaks
Vying for center stage.

Yeah, this is what I signed up for!
I was hoping for psychotic bully
To scare me “straight”.
Maybe be my “Higher Power”,
Cuz, the one I have been using
Just hasn’t been giving me enough
Tough love- damn it!

The science of demoralization
Psychological warfare,
Chipping away at a forest of 
Human stumps and blinking 
Chainsaw sculptures
Frozen and assuming the position
