Magic Words


In the land of the lost
They dug up a book of magic spells today
No one had seen spells like this before
Some of them were extremely weird
The cover of the book said:
PO-etry
And the people wondered if PO-etry was a black or white magic. The book was sent to an expert in magic and his assistant for examining.

Look at page 82
'Mumps on the breast
sleepless rest
Eastless west
I didn't have to study for my urine test.'

or
page 97
'Crazy insane
painless pain
evaporating rain
nothing changes perception
quite like the brain.'

or how about
page 115
'Vision blurred
brain is slurred
this is what happens
when I think like the herd.'

The expert in magic confirmed it was white magic and shared the spells with everyone. The spells brought wonder and joy to the people in the land of the lost. And perhaps that is magic in itself.
