it didn’t smell like mistletoe

when günther joined the circus
he was doing acrobatics
he gave off an aroma
that was hardly aromatic
you were there
so you should know
it didn’t smell like mistletoe
it made life hard for all the
other members of the teamgraphics-skunk-432468
the boy could use a shower
and a scent-infested steam
it wasn’t really günther’s fault
he couldn’t even smell it
he got it from his father’s side,
to hear his mother tell it
günther left the circus life
when they left him behind
he’s moved into the zoo
where they don’t notice… or don’t mind
