its over for him, captain

He was freak show sideshow with one suit,
only worn for best.

Tie tied to tight.

Constricts so he cries
from his ears at passers by

who prod with sticks bought at a kiosks

For a pound and you get a stick
candy floss and

some feed to throw over the fence where on sunny days
your shadow can penetrate.

He is not appreciated and
no longer unique or special.

primed for extinction
Tossed out like sole less trainers
empty printer cartridges
Cereal packets.
Not recycled.

It’s all over for him captain.
