Tumble



ExposT of world renown. Everything once lost is found.
Red and yellow, white and brown. Blaring out discordant sound.
Monarchies display the crown. Clerics frantically expound.
Cummerbund and bridal gown. Rituals often confound.
Playful antics of the clown. Manifestos that astound.
Silly grin and pouting frown. Pandemonium abound.
Leaping lizards on the town. Somersault and twist around.
Tumble over upside down. Reptiles slither underground.
Toss the rope before they drown. Life enigmas still dumfound.
Peaceful, quiet, soothing lown. Circumfused safely surround
