Abra cadabra

 He is a master of illusory feats
From out of nowhere he pulls a parakeet
After  doing  that
He then pulls a rabbit out of his hat

From out of his palm things suddenly appear
As if they came  out of thin air
His audience looks in disbelief 
As he pulls a bouquet  ( from his sleeve)

Abra cadabra are the words we hear
As his lovely assistant disappears
Then he waves his magic wand with flair
And suddenly she reappears

He can tell you the card you picked
It's just  a part of his magic tricks
He can put things together that he took apart
But he just cant mend his broken heart

He waves his magic wand so debonaire 
Wishing that the one he loves will appear
"Abra cadabra" he says again
And his tears fall down like rain
He can pull rabbits out of hats
 But the master of illusion cannot bring love back

    Feeling so sorry for the master...Illusions ans delusion...I hope he'll be happy at last. Clowns, people tell, are bound to be sad, in fact; but magicians do have a better chance, I'm sure! Have a nice weekend, Joseph! Blessings, Hanitra

    He must an mazing juggler. "It's just a part of his magic tricks He can put things together that he took apart But he just cant mend his broken heart" This is a good narrative.
