“Be careful going out,” we tell each of our daughters. “The freak show is in town.”

The snake charmers will think you one of their beasts.

The strongmen will toss and rip you apart.

The ones with tattoos will stare while they learn.

And even the ringmaster hides tricks under charms.

“But it is not our job to stop the freak show,” we say. “It is yours not to enter.”

Be careful going out. There are real freaks about.
