It’s Quadrille Monday again at the dVerse Poets Pub; time to create a 44-word poem.
This week our host, De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) asks us to create a poem using the word “Gasp” or some word that incorporates it.
The No-Show Show
He was a better magician than expected;
far better than advertised.
He’d done his vanishing act before,
almost a million times, but tonight
things were different. Tonight
he’d vanished sooner and
more completely than ever before,
leaving the audience gasping,
gobsmacked, demanding a refund.

Can’t you just picture that: the incredulousness that he disappeared! Then reality sets in: “Hey! We want our money back!” Well done, Ron.
I can picture it so clearly! The crowd furious at the absence of the magician .. their evening ruined. Excellent write, Ron! ❤️
Clever but tricky magician.
This poem made me laugh. I hope those folks get their refunds lol.
This does not endear me to magic shows 😉
There’s such a thing as too good. And you’re that my friend. Wonderful, as usual.

Magically done, Ron.!

Well, it is what he does. So, what were they expecting. Fun poem.
