Magic & Illusion

Ladies and gentlemen
Feast your eyes on center ring
Witness the finest show
of magic and illusions
Ladies and gentlemen
This is art we’re practicing
It’s dangerous, you know
It may appear confusing
Ladies and gentlemen
You won’t believe the things you see
But keep an open mind
And you will be convinced
Ladies and gentlemen
Kindly find the closest seat
Now, let us dim the lights
And let the show commence

We will amaze you with our disappearing act
In fact I think you will agree it’s quite unnerving
Don’t be alarmed to see me saw myself in half
And if you must, then look away, if it’s disturbing
We wave our wands and pull our smiles from the hat
In fact you cannot tell the real from immitation
We swallow fire with our dignity in tact
And speak of things beyond your grand imagination

I tend to sleep at night on beds of sharpened nails
In fact I’m rather well adjusted to the feeling
We juggle swords and spikes, and you can hardly tell
Sometimes we use them to suspend us from the ceiling
You will be dazzled as we hover without strings
I’ve been left hanging here for hours all alone
And, for my final trick, I vanish into dreams
But, please, remember folks: don’t try these things at home

  1. The thrill of the circus, with magical wonders
    wondrous acts, mind blowing excitement at
    every turn, feel the rush of enjoyment beyond
    the every day, mundane twists and turns and
    savour the enchanting illusions that create a
    world of adventures all rolled into one show 🙂

    I really like this one Vampire Weather 🙂


  2. This is very cool! I love stories, movies and poems with an old carnival or traveling show flavor, it holds such an old-fashioned mystique. “…And, for my final trick, I vanish into dreams…” Awesome!

  3. I felt as though you put a show into my head. it took my away from my reality and brought me to a place of pure joy and amazment!
