faites vos jeux

on the wheel of rebirth

pick a number

roll a ball.

Faites vos jeux!

 

play out your fate

before is too late

and a finger taps,

calling “Time”

 

a roulette of chance

the music of dance

an hourglass figure

is counting, only sand

 

who can own life,

lest poised on a knife,

scaling a balance?

every second weighs

 

only a little wheel

in a circle surreal

in which you are

of course, the centre

 

if the galaxies knew

that it is, around you

where they must pivot

and, sur les pointes

 

if you get all in a spin

because you want a win

you have not the perspective

of a cosmic detective

 

live in your puddle

and forever a muddle

affirm you are right

until your last night

 

on the wheel of rebirth

pick a number

roll a ball.

Faites vos jeux!!
