Escaping down through the alleyways
Worlds abuzz with rambling wanderers
Street musicians ply their trades and wares
As acrobats climb to tumble, through
A swirl in dancing painted silks in lofty pairs
While stilt walkers bend, flip, turn, and dance
Laughter amongst the children, their happy
feet at play as they run, gather, or pause in awe.
Escapes down twisted laneways, painted faces
Dance to young revellers tunes, for there’s no
escape a back street carnival, worlds in colour
painting in song, in laughter, life’s fun all set to a spin.
