A Wizard’s Revenge

     I think we should start off the weekend with a little bit of good-natured humor, wizard style. This is an older poem that I have, again, revised for your reading pressure pleasure.

     Have a terrific weekend everyone,

Jake.

A Wizard’s Revenge

With crescent moons

and golden stars,

the wizard’s cap be donned.

But, the mystery bade

by the wizard’s trade,

lay in his words and wand.

Δ 

For with but a wave

came a puff of smoke,

and things would disappear!

Or perhaps they’d arrive

in the blink of an eye,

from places far and near.

Δ

Though be it exotic

or more commonplace,

all were so hard to explain.

When the wizard was heard

to utter a mystical word,

that may have come from the land of Spain.

Δ

Abracadabra! I’ve heard it said

could summon powers,

beyond your belief.

Used only for joy

though not as a toy,

and forbidden its use to cause grief!

Δ

But, that was until

the one fateful day

when the wizard was treated unkind.

Without any respect”

he’d later reflect,

as this thought then invaded his mind.

Δ

Why should so be I

a wizard so great

with magic at my beck and command

be treated that way

when one word I could say,

and fling him off to some foreign land?”

Δ

But, the wizard devised

a more devilish plan,

to inflict on his victim that day!

With that word and wand’s wave

came a curse to the grave,

of a mother-in-law arriving to stay!
