The prompts for Three Word Wednesday http://www.threewordwednesday.com/ are “evident, illusion tragic.” I started out doodling with a rhyming scheme and never was able to get into this poem. I’ve decided I don’t like it, much too choppy, sounds like a limerick trying to sneeze. It won’t happen again.

Smoothly flowed his magic show,
each illusion masterfully done,
his skill more evident with each.
How is it done, we want to know,
It looks like so much fun.
How far can his skills reach?
Then it went wrong, although
the box was carefully spun,
the release he could not reach.
He received a tragic blow
as his act became undone.
Now all he does is teach.
