A Chance

Every turn I take

The dice in life roll

Against bumpers landing on felt

An answer presents itself

A value, a number

Enumerated to be matched

Or cold hard hit off the blocks 

There are days they spin

Teasing out my fate

Or take a side trip

Faking a landing

I watch hoping

I play the positive line

I avoid the don’t come line

The results are simple plain

I embrace good with the bad

I revel in great

And curse the profane

Time flies by as my chances peel

From a giant notebook they come

Shooter up, the roll is a seven
