Some people ask:- “What’s it’ you say?”
Parry them I:- “With words I play…
Bedazzled, stand they, gazing broad
I point at them, while they applaud”
“What ’bout ‘s all the fuss?”, a voice.
“Oh crowd, I’m left with no choice…
How dare forget my name, you dude
This act of yours is utter rude!
For you’ve not asked from me the same
Involved the crowd to my shame!
It’s time to show you wizardry
You turn ‘nto toad by my decree!”
With that he gestured ‘nto air thin
A toad turned man sat aback then lean
With watery eyes, glanced at the crowd,
While wizard stood all great and proud.
The crowd spoke:- “With words you play…”
A scared pause added:- “…was what did you say”
“Afraid?”, exclaimed the spellweaving man
“It was just humour, that’s all a plan!”
Our wordmeister swung his hands.
In a whiff he changed the magic trends.
The toad leaped up and in no time,
Hugged him, shameless, covered in slime.
Wordplaying man was set aback,
Slime flying about with each whack
He did renounce all the claims:-
“I’m not the one who binds in chains!”
“What, what?”- crowd got all confused
To speak any further he refused.
Toadman spoke:- “All of you we do address,
Don’t worry, we did not digress to your distress
He’s an actor- I’m the man, his magic’s fine
And this darn script ‘s of my design!
I guess you all were played damn well,
You read till here and that is swell!”
