Abracadabra Indeed ……

A word said by magicians performing magic tricks … like hocus pocus

Maybe gibberish to give the impression of arcane knowledge … mumbo jumbo

It is known to have been in use in 4th century Latin. But other theories abound from 2nd century Hebrew or Aramaic meaning:

It will be created in my words!

Sort of like this post?

Abracadabra, thus we learn
The more you create, the less you earn.
The less you earn, the more you’re given,
The less you lead, the more you’re driven,
The more destroyed, the more they feed,
The more you pay, the more they need,
The more you earn, the less you keep,
And now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to take
If the tax-collector hasn’t got it before I wake.
