Sea salts and kundalini
hope it’ll help me with my breathing.
Did you know that Harry Houdini
died in his sleep from internal bleeding?

Well, the Master of Escape
could not foresee his very last day
due to his own delay
he met his doom to our dismay.

Merlin, from Arthurian legend
told by the tongues
and the tales of the peasants
chose emotions first
and potions second
a choice he learnt from a horrid lesson

When the Lady of the Lake
entombed our wizard in a cave.
Lust she took, trust she did break
much to our wizard’s own mistake.

Gandalf the Grey strayed too soon
fighting with pride
on the bridge of Khazad-dûm.
