Mind Readers



Unnoticed chicaneries
are tricks of the trade
used by the mentalist in their stage charade.

Secret investigations
are grist of the mill
used by the mentalist in their cogent spell.

Telepathic transmissions
are cons of the mind
used by the mentalist in their data find.

Audience participants
are pawns of the game
used by the mentalist in their super claim.

Susceptible believers
are bare of the facts
used by the mentalist in their odd contracts.
