Reminder of Today: Houdini Underwater 1907
Sinking man feeling the weight of chains,
Water surrounding his body that’s being swallowed
By a dark mass of liquid that leaves no stains,
Showing how the giver of life could also end it
Unless you cheat death, once again.
Geniality or stupidity, they’re pretty similar
Both pushing forward our fears into new boundaries
Only fifty seven seconds, that is spectacular,
To break free and be the myth of incredible stories
Of a supernatural man who did not fear death.
