Coin Flips and Odd Luck

 Before this and
    after that
how we tell the time

Life as a series
of forked-road
All crossroads all the time

Coin flips and
odd luck
    to determine
        absolutely everything

We are but
wholly dependent
    on forces
beyond our own control

A Poem (with a particular cadence)


Do as I do and not as I say
The ultimate way of spending a day

The cheese is so hot the water’s too long
Learn all the children of what’s write and rong

Your Mother’s the lady whom I know the best
I popped her the quiz she failed me the test

Violets are red and the roses are sour
Tell me the time and I’ll give you an hour

Lies are to truth as cash is to money
Large sacs of pollen bees make the honey

Life is an exercise that makes me so tired
Keep drinking coffee you’re bound to get wired

A trap from the future I love her the most
Reading a novel egg sandwich on toast

Caught in the wild a siren in tune
Music to senses April is June
