Do You Have A Minute?








After years of research, I'm exited to announce
My newest discovery, can you pronounce
"DACTYLIOMANCY".. (it begins with a D)

Used in ancient times, by wizards and Kings
To tell the future, using only rings
And it fits me to a "T"

(well.. a "D")
(technically)



Sound confusing? Allow me to make it clear
But first I will need a volunteer
Someone with a ring, (gold, as it works best)..

You in the front row, yes I'm talking to you
WOW, a real diamond! I'm sure that will do
How big is it? Darn, I'm impressed!

(who would have guessed)
(the way HE is dressed)



So let me take this rope, made of a simple string
And hold it up for you to see while I attach the ring
See it slide down, as I give it a quick pat..

Watch as I move the ring back and forth, not alot
Hold on a moment, I almost forgot
Does anyone here have a hat?

(It can't be flat)
(Nor look like THAT)



Watch me open the hat, nice and wide
Then watch as I drop the ring deep inside
Hold on, I'm already getting a reading..

The ring is speaking to me, in a primitive state
Give me another second and I will translate
It says "Soon, a new ring you will be needing!"

(Well, that is miss-leading)
(My talent must be receding)



Because the ring is... WAIT, it's not in here
But how could it so easily just disappear?
It's like it knew it's own future.. how odd..

Oh my, look at the clock, it's time to go
I hope you guys all enjoyed my show
Remember, Dactyliomancy does NOT mean fraud..

(And.. if your not yet awed)
(Next week I'll bring my money rod)

thanks Bill,

about your ring.. you should ask the guy who's hat I borrowed for the trick, unless you believe the ring ran away on it's own.. which COULD have happened you know, it is round..

Smooch
