The Magician’s Assistant

a magic wand, plus a top had with rabbit's ears poking out

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 29 July 2021, real.

Though their marital grievances grew,
Magic Sword trick helped husband’s revue,
But the blades they were real
She felt taste of cold steel,
As he skewered her right the way through
