the show begins with a flash of light, then twinkling little stars.
the audience shifts to the edge of their seats, holding breaths,
ready to take part
they know what to expect, they've seen it all before
suspending reason is part of the show
ready to please the master of illusion
sit back and relax
you won't believe your eyes
he moves on stage like a foul synapse
transmitting messages to simple minds
a woman appears with flashy clothes and a big, big smile
she will only be there for a moment
her time is limited because he only needs her for a while
the audience is not wowed by her disappearance
smoke fills the room and boom!
it's like she never existed as she was only meant to be seen, not heard
he moves to the next act
memories fade as the smoke evaporates
rushing out in a herd after witnessing something superb.
minds elevated, shifted, transformed and he feels satisfied having given
another great performance.
