The Game Of Life

It is life, one is taught
When one
Slides down the snake
At 99

Get up again, for
A rout comes before a victory
Pray for the ladders
And brave the serpents

March, one is told
March away, for you shall win
This is the true truth
Truer than the one never told

That your fortunes aren’t yours
To govern
They bow to the whim
Of the capricious dice
