Foreclosed, forsaken circus ground,
the culprit there was never found,
his deeds of yesteryear, wind blown
as whistling news, forgotten sound.
The happy place was world renowned
until his blade struck children down.
His shattered psyche, dark mirrored place
is his within the broken clown.
At times unlucky, kids will stray
as even falls on dares to play
within the Haunting House to hide,
and seek to go, yet always stay.
Miraged dead ends their fates decide:
which ones to keep the pain inside,
which parts to eat, which parts when dyed
become his schizophrenic hide.
