Once upon a timeTo Jonathan Penton's previous piece     Don't Let Me Give You a TitleTo 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 

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 
Do you look to borrow money? 
Do you appeal to the house? 
Or are all the chambers empty in the first place?
