“Where does all my money go? It’s like, hocus pocus I’m brocus”

"Hocus pocus I’m brokus” is a jocular saying about not having money that has been printed on many images. “Hocus-pocus” are words used (sometimes jocularly) in magic. “Brokus” is an invented word from “broke,” and it is sometime spelled “brocus” to look like the other words.

Wikipedia: Hocus-pocus
Hocus-pocus is a generic term that may be derived from an ancient language and is currently used to refer to the actions of magicians, often as the stereotypical magic words spoken when bringing about some sort of change. It was once a common term for a magician, juggler, or other similar entertainers.
