Magic Trick - Poem by Cory Fox

Boys and girls, take your places
It's time again, I'm sure you know
To wear your happy faces
Because we all love a good show

Dear ladies and gentlemen,
What's up my sleeves won't fool the wise
But don't you be so blind then
To what a smiling face belies

No cards, no doves, no trap door,
certainly no black and white stick!
How then can you be so sure
That you don't believe in magic?

For everyone crowded here
It seemed beyond reason and rhyme
Why then did none volunteer?
You fell for my act all this time

No will left to control it
Stop your crying, condemn your fear
Watch how with just one bullet
How many lives will disappear
