Pigs might fly…


Who says they can’t?

Is there an omniscient

Honestly I came across you first

How different your life would have been,

Grey Magic


Grey magic is the next big thing
used at a party it could makes things swing
Plenty of spells to make guests relax
and one to stop the Chancellor charging us tax
