Poem introduction

This is a poem called 'The Conjuror' and it arose quite fortuitously as poems we all know so often do. We'd been to a funeral and we got there too early - it was one of those days you know when they come in every twenty minutes and we spent the time looking round the graveyard and saw something which I think would have appealed to anyone's imagination - a conjuror's grave.
