Marionettes masquerade performances

move with a mystic mystique

almost alive without sound

No breath for fresh air

Manipulators control

Imaginations interpret

eerily delightful performances

Reflect the history of this golden city

Enjoyed by our youth

Joy wandered from society

Mirroring the antique carousel

Spinning recycled memories

of a forgotten Arabian game

Restored and reinvented by light sparks

Neglected as antediluvian ideas

Antiquity is necromantic

in the beginning the we float

Falling teardrops abandon innocence

Maturity is the false comfort zone

Childhood dreams contain transcendental virtue

Ushering in an epoch of interconnected overstanding
