What’s magic… but a wish of the imaginary

The imagination of the weary!

An illusion of eyes and a sleight of the hand

What’s magic but a world of make belief band

A dream come true, a moment lived without theory!

Sincere apologies for the above. I take no responsibility for it. Whatsoever.
I came up with it impromptu during an informal chat with a friend, who turned out to be a terrorist in disguise and now holds a gun to my head, insisting I post it.Β So, please bear with me as I try to save my life and put yours in jeopardy by posting my very first attempt at poetry.

      I have absolutely no idea how it came about. I am not at all a ‘poetic’ person πŸ˜€

    If poetry erupts, let it spew. I enjoyed the volcanic blow. Poetry can only be appreciated. Keep it flying in the sky and rolling down the mountain.
