So this is where the dice have landed this turn
At least this rigged game is now amusing     or at least better understood

Back in the ring for one last bout in a cash-out PPV extravaganza
the script is read and the scenes are rehearsed

Social batteries recharged on chaos uncertainty and pandemic
Bad habits atrophied and autopilots disengaged     there is clarity anew

Because once they taste blood–sharks and vampires and artists
all they want is more and more until there is none

While we will never literally live forever we can
Leave the breadcrumbs that suggest there was once a life    worth living
