To hide it or it was ironic,
A self-congratulatory joke,
Or maybe it was an accident.
Who knows? The magician who made it,
Despite having many admirers,
Has yet to be located, and some
Contrarians claim the magician
Never existed, in which case, no
Dark humor could be attributed
To the fact that the only exit,
The portal to the whole outside world,
Stood in the prison’s inner sanctum,
Bolted, with a sign saying Keep Out.
