Modern Freak Show

People in the olden days
Used to go to Freak Shows,
To see sights of people
uncommon, people undiscovered.

I went to a Modern Freak Show, and I couldn’t believe what I saw-
A family unbroken by divorce,
A happy couple married for years, people that found true love.
A girl who was
Happy
With her self-image,
A boy who had never contemplated suicide.
Three children who had never watched TV,
A teenage guy who could stay away from his phone when
getting lunch with friends-
One chick who didn’t feel the pressure of grades.

People that advocated peace,
People that looked for love, not bank-
People that we don’t have in our lives today,
People that I wish we did.
