Don't look away

A Poem

Don’t look away.

I will show you a trick:

See this ordinary hat?

Tap it, see, nice and empty.

Rabbits surely can’t come out of here.

And see this ordinary handkerchief?

Cotton, slightly frayed?

The handkerchief goes in the hat.

I wriggle my fingers just so, and…

Oh, did you look away from the hat?

Now the handkerchief is gone!
