Darkness and light
Smoke and mirrors parlor games
Keep their pawns in a fog covered veil
Moving them like puppets on thin strings
Making the rules as they’re breaking them
Until one player finds the blade
And cuts the strings that hold them
With a swish of their hand
The veil is parted
Tables are turned
Free the hands
