François the Fearless French Fire-eater

François the Fearless French Fire-eater
François did not walk the high wire
François instead did tricks with fire

François did not play the baby grand
François swallowed a flaming brand

François didn’t balance on the horses
François juggled with lighted torches

François had no tricks up his sleeve
François though could fire breathe

François they said, had no fear
François drank far too much beer

François abstained from elephant dances
François took far too many chances

François wished he’d lion-tamed
François suddenly went up in flames
