Merlin - Poem by Professor Poetry Hound
Do you think I could give my prayers a little extra boost
by donning a wizard’s robe and waving a magic wand
around while I’m praying? I figure it can’t hurt. Maybe
there’ll be a puff of smoke and my prayers will be
By the way, I think the reason Jesus doesn’t perform
magic trick miracles anymore is that guys like Harry
Houdini and generations of professional magicians have
made his miracles seem rather tame. How is he going to
compete with guys who can escape from handcuffs in a
box under water or catch flying bullets in their teeth?
He really needs to chuck that walking-on-water act and
come up with a new routine. He could test it out on the
kiddie birthday circuit, then graduate to corporate gigs,
and then one day he might headline in a Las Vegas
showroom. Then he’d have a huge audience and he
could tell them that they’re all sinners but that he’ll
expunge their records if they fall in love with him.
But he’ll need to have a lot of razzle-dazzle in his act
while he’s proselytizing. If he just does some card
tricks or makes a coin disappear in his hand, I think a
lot of people will find him kind of dull.
