The last thing you remembered,
Or what happened at the start.
From reality dismembered?
That is a magician's art.

He really wasn't funny,
Neither the following curse.
Can't sleep, dark or sunny,
Across the universe.

  • $\begingroup$ Well done. For "the following curse", I was thinking more Bane from DK Rises, but that works as well. $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd Sep 11 '15 at 13:56
  • $\begingroup$ Nice riddle, and that's a fun coincidence that the same clue worked for two movies. Am I right that the puzzle title references the tendency in these movies to have a twist at the end that recontextualizes the beginning ("What really happened")? $\endgroup$ – histocrat Sep 11 '15 at 15:36
