We Can't Change the World

The world is a circus,
or so it has become,
and we're all performers on a stage,
or watchers in the crowd
who stand in awe and disbelief.

Where contortionists not only twist their bodies,
but twist the truth.

Where acrobats go to great heights,
risk their lives and fall for you.

Where lion tamers make them jump through flaming hoops,
then are stupid enough to put their head in the lions mouth.

The difference between the world and the circus,
is that a crowd large enough has the power to stop the circus.
