Topic: Magician poem
Message: Posted by: Faulkner (Oct 26, 2017 10:04PM)
I am not sure where to ask this question so I start here.
There is a poem called The Magicians Lament or something like that. It tells of a street performer who died and the devil tempts him to give away the secret of the cups and balls.
Any help?
Thanks

I searched around but didn't find anything. Where did you hear it?
