I’ve been busy trying to write a Halloween circus book. It has a decent beginning and good end, but the middle is killing me! My hubster suggested turning it into an ABC book, which is a good idea… but I guess I’m in the frustrated writer phase, because this is what came up with today. I don’t suggest reading it to your toddlers before bed…
An Absolutely Brutal Circus
ABC book by Karen Windness
A is for ambulance taking acrobats away.
B is for bears lapping blood off their prey.

D for daredevils on which the clowns dine.
E for explosions from elephant rears.
F for fireworks that will bring you to tears.
G for a guest who’d be better off dead.
H for the hippo who’ll sit on your head.
I is for I scream when I see teeth like saws.
J – juicy jugglers in jaguar jaws.
K is for knives and knife thrower who trips.
L is for lions with lickety lips.
M for magician making mischievous magic.
N for a net with a hole – oh how tragic!
O is for “Open!”, but this door is shut tight.

Oh wait, here’s an eXit! Good luck and good-bye!
Y would you read even one more bad letter?
Lets go to the Zoo. That has GOT to be better.
