#2,662 Freak Show

Mike Bell/ April 6, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

I hung out at a freak show
run by nuns – a filthy habit
under anyone’s charge – A
Mother Superior & Sisters
of Servitude took pride in
their work – men were left
to raise roofing funds – on
Sundays they drunk all of
Father’s vin rouge – foxed
on mass wine & blood – in
outrageous laughter they
clucked ‘nough to shatter
glass – kept freaks roared
aloud vows of direful love
