Air Tight Landing

Arlo the acrobat felt disjointed
Fell from high most disappointed
Down from the big top falling free
In the glare of a bright light jamboree

Caught in the grip of an elephants trunk
Saved from the crush of a flat-line dunk
His facial expression resigned in despair
As he finally expired due to lack of fresh air

Laid him to rest with procession and style
Heaping on praise how his stunts would beguile
Recalling applause and such laughter that night
When Arlo mistimed his last swing out of sight
