The Magician’s Last Trick

The spotlight too bright,
The magician lost his sight,
Forced only to hear.
The shuffling feet betray their fear.
They head for the door,
Fully aware of what’s beneath the floor.
The bomb goes tick tick tick.
The desperate magician promises one last trick.
Drenched in sweat, shivering in fear,
The magician hears the crowd draw near.
The audience watching silent as the night,
The magician sets himself alight.
