Beginner’s Luck

When they first learn to do magic,
they think the power they wield is their own.
The ego is a weak, insatiable, master,
and some of the gods are fickle.
And some of the gods are not.
And some of the gods are devils.
And some things are better forgotten.
Only fools dare play with fire,
thinking they won’t get burned.
And the ones who still play at magic,
are the ones who still haven’t learned.
