She paints on her face only moments before the spotlight debut.
The man in the top hat is warming the crowd to introduce her.
Madame Butterfly:
as she falls from great heights
held up by strings,
and the crowd went wild
for Madame Butterfly
Formerly muscle man,
now he mans tigers
to display bravery,
but wishes he was one of those lucky bastards that catches her body.
Madame Butterfly:
as she falls from great heights
held up by strings,
and the crowd went wild
for Madame Butterfly
The lack of a safety net,
sure to inspire
a gasp from young and
old when she did her triple flip nose dive
sixty feet or higher.
But this was all new to him
hardly noticed when her foot slipped
from the sweat on his hands.
She tumbled more awkwardly than
one would expect from
Madame Butterfly

    My OpinionMisleading much? This must be an inside joke because this has just about as much to do with Madame Butterfly as Stairway to Heaven has to do with The Magic Flute. You just don't cite a vastly superior piece of music and then make no homage to it at all.

    Bad form.
