a girl hates the circus clown

Another vicious cycle
   Another circulation
     of the wheel of fortune
     but there’s no prize

I am not the fool
   & ne’er defeated
        I am at rest
   put yourself to bed
      the greatest act[or] just kissed his show
                                                           goodbye

I guess you imagine me the bearded lady
       I guess the bearded lady is a whore too
I know this will ravage your soul
        it’s why you had to bury the proof

words are the ringleader’s greatest weapon
                   and mine
                      & landmine
                     & mine

             they all go off once you step on one
