    Don't let the magicians
    Distract you
    Overly impact you
    Make you miss what's real
    Distort the way you feel
    So you see what's only an illusion
    Come to the wrong conclusion
    That you aint
    That you caint
    That you're out
    That you aint got
    While the magician is busy taking
    By sleight of hand and faking
    Hocus Pocus
    There goes your focus
    You willingly gave
    Your soul up as a slave
    It's in the realm of tragic
    You still hooked on magic
    That's making you dissappear
    Taking you right on out of here
    Better change your habit
    You Silly Wabbit
    Trick Knowledge is for KIDS

    that's why you the man. That was so powerful and such a positive message. all our little brothers and sisters should recite that at the beginning of a school day.

    Keep on keeping
