Magicians

M

Never trust a magician!
He leaves you in disbelief,
makes you question without permission

Perception is everything,
intercepting your understanding,
patience is wearing thin
I promise you

I was a victim of trusting
someone who’s double faced
Showing me tricks, and
they had me begging for double takes

A bitter pill that I always
had trouble swallowing,
please heed my words
as I warn you about the following:

I paid to see Fate The Fantastical
Showing sketchy tactics and
very far from magical
Stuck in your life and you’re seeking help?

He’ll try to convince you
that he’s the monster who played
the hand that you were dealt

A “one-way” in your journey never existed
so throw those cards back in his face,
tell him “Don’t get it twisted!”

Then leave the show and get your money back,
fill your money bag quick
while making your own plans
with money stacks

I saw the power of
The Spellbinding Heartbreaker
He promises forever
but claims he’ll see you later

I caught him backstage
rehearsing his apology
illusionist at heart
and a student of escapology

A Houdini whodunit level of disappearance
Shackled by love and commitment,
begging for interference

And my advice is that
you crash his performance
Reveal him to the audience,
damage would be enormous

The mental menace
known as Doubt The Diabolical
The worst of the bunch since
he’s demanding and methodical

He has the gift to convince you
to give up on your dreams,
taking the stage with volunteers,
“voices” sing his theme

Enticing suicide, heartless,
and pushes you aside
Signals your “Sayonara!” by
serving you soothing cyanide

So boo him off the stage
as loud as you can!
Steal his thunder, change the world
’cause I’m one among your many fans!
