Tricks are used in many ways
If not for fun, then someone pays
A magic hat can run so deep
The rabbit’s there, but fast asleep

For many tricks are silent now
Joy can be found, but who knows how?
For many tricksters leave their mark
And many scars hide in the dark

So in this space we’ve time to think
Would we allow ourselves to sink?
Or see the tricks in day’s cold light
A chance to believe once truth’s in sight

Amidst the weaving webs we spin
You might take time to laugh, or grin
If you’ve been tricked, regain your force
A trickster may be tricked of course
