Hark! hark! the dogs do bark, The beggars are coming to town; Some in rags and some in tags, And some in silken gowns.* Some gave them white bread, And some gave them brown, And some gave them a good horse-whip, And sent them out of the town.
Piccolo the Elephant, Bertram Mills Circus, 1951, London. Please, NEVER go to circus that uses performing animals. As cool as these old photos are, the reality for these poor animals is a horror and we should know better in this day and age. Please spread the word!
