After the magician’s assistant eloped
with his rabbit, he started to drink.
He couldn’t decide what was worst:
their deceit or the fact that
he didn’t know piss about the illusions.
the tricks and the treats.
He once was the “Magnificent Lucio”
but now he was left to their bills,
his bourbon and a top-hat to big for his head.
It had always been the brains of the rodent
and the legs of his delicious assistant.
The rabbit and her assistant created a start-up,
selling spandex tuxedos for women.
I have no idea where this story came from for Magpie Tales
