The crowd waited with watchful eyes...
when to my amazement and my surprise,
the entertainer in his disguise
moved the cups around clockwise,
I knew the one I had money riding,
as I watched it was hypnotizing...
position changing...fingers flying,
he was good so was his timing,
so we reached the final end,
I really couldn't comprehend...
"which one was it?" I asked my friend,
"I really don't know...with his slight of hand,"
I have to admit I was bereft,
I pointed to the cup upon my left...
he looked at me our eyes met,
he lifted the cup I'd lost my bet.
