The rules of the game are not quite clear
You can smoke a cigarette or say no I’d rather have a beer
There is a world of vocations maybe you could even have a career
Sexual encounters with men and women or abstinence my dear
Take up folk singing with like-minded people and meet up every year
Swim with dolphins if you please but I heard one bit off someone’s ear
Be a Hindu Muslim Catholic or a seventh day Baptist as long as our lives we do not fear
Eat only vegetables but don’t preach to carnivores because they ate Bambi so shed a tear
Questions we can never answer and answers to questions we never want to hear
I think to myself about these things and many more but one thing I know the choices get less and less the older I am here.
