there’s monsters on the calliope
their music plays for you and me
but we are not amused
it has been said we can be found
snuffling for truffles on the ground
leaving us both confused
you didn’t ask so we can’t tell
what brought us to this living hell
nor can we be conceived
to be the ones you’re looking for
the truth behind the hidden door
though some may be deceived
so settle back enjoy the show
watch the monsters go man go
and on the music plays
while life and death and other games
leave us with nothing but our names
to see out our last days

    I love how you rhymed the first two lines, the last two lines and the third and sixth line. It seems really hard to do but you pulled it off perfectly!!

    • I’ve used the same structure before, but as six line verses, this time I wanted the flow 😀
