play at your own risk

at this moment 
a game is being played
two contemplating 
on moves being made
four sitting at a table
in a game called spades
ten passing a ball
up and down a court
all different variety's 
and kinds of sports
a man telling his wife 
why he's coming home late
a leader telling the his people
why they have to wait
the man at the gate 
telling you it's too late
the bureaucrat with power
that decides your fate
a boy asking a girl out 
for her very first date
a cop looking for criminals
using drugs as bait
the devil with his lies
who you dare to debate
and your compromise with God 
with whom you cannot equate

    It seems most things in life are a sort of game within a game. I always found it amusing when people say to the opposie sex for example, "I don't like games"...Boy meets girl, let the games begin and unless you want to go solo, like it or not youre in the game whether you know it or not. In business, gotta play the game too. Pretty much in life but who wins?

    Good title and poem. So many things in Life are a risk.

    "Ten passing a ball up and down a court" The Sixers have gotten off to a great start in this lockout-abbreviated season despite losing to the Knicks in the Garden last night. Very deep write that covers a lot of the world's activity.
