Watch me pull this rabbit out of my hat

I used to think I knew something
I used to think fair was universal

God was in his heaven (where I needn’t write nor visit)
He and the world looked at me as a petulant and lovable child

I used to think women were for wanting and keeping
Saving was my business and my business consumed me

Now I know the humiliation of a failed magic trick
Shamed faces, red cheeks, reshuffling falling cards
Stuffing a red and white flag up the torn cuff of my jacket
