The Conjuror 2.

 

Today we’ll turn to fairy-tale,

to ‘Once Upon A Time’;

the thought of ‘Happily Ever After’

isn’t viewed as such a crime.

You’ll see it in the distance,

an image of such power,

the royal palace calls to you

with those banners, moat and tower.

Look there, in the garden,

do you see the handsome prince;

he hands to her a flower

but just ignore the wince.

This is a place of romance

and of love that remains true,

perhaps a concept just so alien

to one that is like you.

The king and queen are really kind,

their wealth and joy they share;

it really is a happy place

for those who do dwell there.

Remember now just who I am,

a magician of the mind,

and the fact of the reality

is very hard to find.

The castle has a dungeon,

and inside there prisoners dwell,

the castle that they do perceive --

one that is a living hell.
