To Jonathan Penton's previous piece To Jonathan Penton's next piece
God and I sat down for poker and chess He is a better strategist than I But I have the stonier face. I came to the conclusion That he had a set of dice And he'd been toying with the pieces from the get-go. He moved his pawns at random But he made up all the rules Leaving no one in a position To question what he considered Victory. Then he asked: When you lose at cards Do you have the balls to pay? Or do you see it as an issue you can Negotiate? Do you look to borrow money? Do you appeal to the house? Or are all the chambers empty in the first place?
