THE MAGICIAN

A perfectly timed strike,

A magician’s cape,

Look over there!

Magic? Deception?

Distraction!

Clever? Never!

Manipulator? Disintegrator!

Alone in dissonance

The ego rules the eye,

Near sighted, short-sighted, no sighted.

Caviar and bombs,

A dinner fit for a swindler,

While the games are played,

A puppet dances, looking for ratings.

No intent, no objective, no strategy.

It’s only a moment, a whim,

A sleight of hand.

Beware the magician!
