Interesting stuff. Thanks for running it down. I'll be looking forward to seeing if you can find out the actual source. (By actual source, I mean whether they took it from Bradbury or from Shakespeare.
Read Macbeth in HS. Really need to read it again.

It is also a line in an Insane Clown Posse song, the majority of the juggalo nation, and the dark carnival itself basis within "Something Wicked This way Comes as well as another book with i can't remember the name of the author or title of the book it's self
Many don't believe in our carnival freakshow"
here is the context in which it apears from the Shangri La: The wraith album it appears in the 1st verse after the ringmaster speaks:
Walk into the Light
[The Carney:] Hurry Up, Show's Startin'
[The Patron:] I ca't believe they're still having it
I better get my butt in there right now
[The Ring Leader:]
Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the sensational
and amazing... "Carnival of Carnage"
They said it couldn't happen, they said it wouldn't last
but boys and girls and everyone we got a carnival for that ass!
Tens of thousands of freaks,sideshows, and fools
a carnival who together lives by their own rules
[Shaggy 2 Dope]
We looked into the stars,foretold everyone
Something dark and wicked this way comes
We told of oddities, crawling from the dark
And a carnival which we can all belong (all belong)
I dwell upon the streets, and I can tell you this
I see some circus, Juggalo shit going on
People drawn together by rare and scubby music
And we even gather once a year to put it down
With Tilt a whirls and merry goes, and a carnival of faygo
We're just tryin to tell you about the light, right
Now all the jokers cards have fallen with spectacular array
So when the wraith is calling,walk into the light,right
I hold a bloody axe, dress in hatchet red
We speak languages people don't understand
I send faygos via punted clear across a staduim in fashion
Only fuckin juggalos could ever demand
I got ninjaz in my backyard wearing Anybody Killa paint
I'm thinkin What the fuck is going on?
Then I see the platinum on the wall, and I realize
The carnivals been right here all along, so lets bring it on
[Shaggz And J]
The crows have overlooked, we gave you all they gave
The carousel will spin on through the night (through the night)
In oz, I'd be the wizard cause I'm overwhelmed
We just hoped the jokers cards would point you out to the light
So you'll be tight, right
[Chorus - repeat until end]
We looked into the stars,foretold everyone<br />Something dark and wicked this way comes<br />We told of oddities, crawling from the dark<br />And a carnival which we can all belong (all belong)<br />I dwell upon the streets, and I can tell you this<br />I see some circus, Juggalo shit going on<br />People drawn together by rare and scrubby music<br />And we even gather once a year to put it down
Have you noticed that if you read the above lyrics backwards really quickly, it makes nearly the same sense if you sing them forwards...! Then again, maybe it's just me!
Juggalo is a good word.
Hey Doug, thanks for reviving a thread that I started some six years ago. I really hadn't the opportunity to read the responses, so really appreciate the opportunity to do so now.
I've just learned from another forum that Juggalo is a term for aficionados of the group Insane Clown Posse, which did a CD entitled Dark Carnival, which attracted one of their number here for a time.
Of several Bradbury references on The Simpsons, one involved passing a shopping mall store named "Something Wicker This Way Comes."
Now that's funny!
