Games People Play

Bored at a board meeting

with all the games played at that table

I turned my mind the game of life

and all the trouble that people make

there is so much aggravation

pawns and the kings manipulating them

and the winner of it all seems to be the one who can get a monopoly

but all he gets is a pile of play money

so is the one who can achieve monopoly any better than the winner of sorry

it is a risk to think of these kinds of questions

it is easy to get check mated if we lose focus on the main thing

I mused as my mind wandered to memories of my own messy weekends

chinese checkers is hard to play when you have lost your marbles

this truth came as a great revelation

the same feeling I get when the dice rolls doubles

yes that was the moment of my awakening

as the rest of the board was still in deep discussion

about a shallow situation

I was thankful even though was still at that table

at least no one noticed that I had been sleeping during the meeting
