Circus!

"Arushi Ahuja"
Elizabeth Taylor, Set of Giant, by Frank Worth!
Swinging in circles,
Ringing the bells,
Clamour around,
Glamour in a spell,
Its a circus! a circus!
My dear friends,
And we are the puppets,
In Nature's hands!
Angling our perfect
body contours,
Hips popped and
Busts raised too,
legs apart in a perfect stance,
ready for Hollywood's
perfect dance!
That's what it is,
It's a living breathing movie,
Where people are actors,
And there foolery a story,
Where props are scattered
At every unknown turn,

It's what we make of it
In our own run!
We make stories of love

passion, heroism,
horror, cruelty, victory,
documentary and  fiction...
And we are the heroes,
and the villains too,
We are the brave hearts
Or the unnoticed few!
