Zazel - The First Human Cannonball

Zazel – The First Human Cannonball

Forget the man on the flying trapeze!
I’m the woman who actually flies!
I’ll be stuffed into an enormous cannon
  set ablaze
then fly across all three rings of the circus tent!
I land in the safety net
     graceful as you please
If I’m in your town you can watch
     twice a day
It’s included in your circus admission!

Be Lovely to Each Other,
