I bought a pretty drinking cup,
But every time I raise it up
I find a ball beneath the cup.

And if I choose to leave it there
Another finds that place to share.
And if I choose to leave the pair
A third descends from who knows where.

If I place the balls into a box
And turn the key until it locks
Then raise the cup; Oh what a shock!

A giant ball is sitting there
To take the place the small ones shared
Then more balls follow everywhere!
An ancient mystery, beyond compare....
Magic is where you find it.....

Very nice. I'm already thinking an in-my-hands routine with my mini Don Alan cup. We'll see how it works out.

Thnaks for sharing.

Hello Dale -

Nice verse that could lead to a very workable and commercial routine. Good work.

Best,

Doug

Thank you all for the kind words. My undergraduate degree was in English, but my professors generally liked my short stories best when it came time for publication. Two graduate degrees and a 36 year career in education followed, but a poem or story still finds its way to the surface every now and then.

Anyone who wishes should feel free to use it if it suits them.

I search for cups, but know not where...

I may have left them at the fair...!

(I need to get some sleep...)
