bird cage magic @Randy Mazie

A Higher Magic

Into the hat,
out of the sleeve,
into the vat,
the magic will weave:

Swirled in the cauldron,
picked from the deck,
sung by a shaman,
the magic will wreck:

Your belief in what is,
what you see or see not,
is it real or showbiz
or diddley-squat?

Look here, no look here,
I’ve a hare by the ear,
once in my hand
and now over there.

And the bird in the air
that soon disappeared
is sitting quite near
the hare unimpaired.

A prestidigitator?
You just have to believe
in something just greater
than you can perceive.
