Master Or Servant

It was said he was the Master,

the Ring-Master in the circus of life.

All the animals succumbed to his power.

He was a true professional,

top of his class.

But humans were outside the ring,

and so they evaded his power,

made sure he knew his place

in their scheme of things.

Yes, in their scheme of things.

it was them who cracked the whip

and made sure he knew that

he was servant not master

of two-legged beasts.

And that is how he knew his place.

It was all he had

for then.
