Circus of Correctness

Hey what’s up?

The Circus of Correctness Hmm!

On earth there are correct countries

Inhabited by all correct natives! Residents

Who are proper and accurately

All right! Exactly truthful,

Absolutely impeccable

Impart a robust moral fibre.

That they are of such veracity

They just cannot afford

To make-up


Thus rightly followed are

Rules adhered to the

Extent hook or by crook

Stay appropriate, victimise

The other

Who, is not a one from clan

By proving him or her wrong

Though he, she is innocent

And contrarily to the so straight

Stay put within integrity.


However for the reason that

Innocence is no excuse or defence

To protect the self against

The wily who handle to remain

Artfully upright

Categorically dismissed by the

Self proclaimed correct who

Only pursue the correct;

Them who land

In such correct lands

Are doomed and damned.


Now how come

These odd ones so human

Find them-selves

In midst of correct states

So grand and noble

Buried in ruins, earn disgrace?

Simple, Machinists of rightness siphon

Sum such at random with

The help vacuum-cleaner-art gadgets

Having long arms!


From a distance pull in heads

To supply as absorbents

Those soak up to the brim

To count away dents, wrongdoings

Of and by the very correct denizens

Of very correct countries of the world

Circus of Correctness Hmm! With

Correct Nations on World Atlas; which, is very good

Asia, as well Africa is but each continent very human.

Now what’s this upbeat it’s only for the correct indeed!

To face-paint; Say make up. Once again hey what’s up?

Humans are human not poser pure correctness at all!
