22 Year Old Magician


I met a 22 year old magician today.
He showed me a trick.
He had done nothing but smile at me.

I looked into his eyes and saw two dead brothers,
A dead father, dysfunctional mother
And an ill son.

I asked him how did he do this trick so perfectly?
He replied 'I have had lots of practice,
But he warned me that its not for the faint hearted.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
