Sleight Of Hand

5 02 2010

pick a card any card
let me convince you
that you have a choice

any parlor magician knows
that you can force the card
there is no choice

pick a card any card
choose your parents
choose divorce
choose disease
or accident
choose the weather
pick a card any card

the magician wants to
baffle and elude
he wants to stifle and delude
you have a choice
to look here or here
watch the hands
not the fingers
pick a card any card

the lovely assistant
is only a distraction
like mirrors and hollow boxes
bump you on the shoulder
and take your wallet
pick a card any card
