Christmas at Oxford Circus

Christmas as Oxford Circus

It is a strange and beautiful thing
to people watch at Oxford Circus
and it is indeed a circus
graced with colourful neon lights
that sparkle so bright
and filled with wildly interesting characters
lion-tamers and tight-rope walkers
beggars and thieves and jugglers and clowns
and fashionista's wearing golden crowns
together evoking from the crowd
frowns and smiles and laughter so loud
on the roads, the traffic builds too
as those red buses travel through
the city at night, 
this circus is forever swarming with life.
and fighting they're way through the streets
the people, searching for material treats
human needs-
they can be so trivial
it's not long before she retreats...
