Cups and Balls

Here, beneath the third one
hide it–
Find it there without a clue
Tell the world
that what you’re after
hints at magic
hand and… shoe?

Slight of finger
Tricks or puns, run
through each, increasing
Find the one with just a
single, silent ping pong
hid beneath it
then you’ll find the
one with two…

Much like life, the hide and seek
Always reaching, always reaching
If we find the ball we search for
Must have been there all along.

Why magic? Why music?
Why madness? Why life?
Keep them guessing
That’s the clue.
