Greatest Show On Earth

No, the circus is not in town. What you saw earlier tonight was just a shoeless boy in a tiara holding six red helium balloons, another boy carrying a Mickey Mouse ball, a slightly bigger boy in camo pants and a dress shirt, an older boy yelling at the other three, and their dad chasing a naughty escaped dog down the sidewalk.

All eyes on me, in the center of the ring, just like a cir-cus.

Bore a striking resemblance to a circus, but I assure you, it was not.
