The Circus FREEK!Show Series: The Bearded Lady // Hannabal Marie
"There’s the bearded lady – should we laugh or should we cry?
Everybody thinks that she’s so weird;
Is she just a man who likes to dress up as a girl?
or could he be a lady with a beard?
See the people pointing, hear the ridicule and scorn,
No-one seems to understand her plight,
Laughing at the freak on show, well worth the fifty cents
Call her names, since you have bought the right.
Look a little closer, past the feathers and the frills,
See her tears fall from mascara’d eyes,
Trapped inside this body feeling every barb and jibe,
No-one ever seems to sympathize."
