THE SHOW MUST GO ON
Words and Music by Caroline Waters
It was a miracle that I made it, after the lawyer who appeared to be drunk and driving like a maniac hit me so hard I got thrown twenty-eight feet with a severed leg. I landed on my nose.
My name is…I forget, I mean I don’t know…I’m not sure. I reside in the physical form of a woman known as Venus. There was an accident. A green Mazda and a bare-legged eighteen-year-old on a ten-speed bike.
It was a miracle that I became a human being again. And it took more than all the king’s horses to do so. Mama and Papa didn’t know what to do, so they decided to focus on what they knew best.
”The show must go on,” they said, and left for a Tour of America.
”The show must go on!”
