Mass Direction

21 Oct
My dad practiced the French Drop
as a POW in Germany. He would
mystify my brother and me when we
were 5 and 6. It's all about
the art of misdirection. The coin
is in the left hand, no, the right.
I never liked
being deceived. Now count
the lies our leaders have told us.
The art of mass direction is afoot.
Are they bumbling idiots? Or is
there a conspiracy to sink the ship?
Is it the left or the right? Choose
the cup the ball is beneath. Are your
eyes 2020? Are you sure? Sucker.
