contingency

Written by: Goode Guy

should the coin flip,
the spade's ace be dealt,
the roulette ball drop,
the slots come up all 9's
- know my stance

i will not be ended
execution style, 
bowed to violence
praying for 
some wasted miracle

assassin, murderous hit
- look me in the face
- watch me - 
watch you kill me
a casing twitching at me

not that i think you'll 
change your way - or mind,
only that i may live on,
if only in your dreams

on face value that
may seem a tad harsh,
a bit vengeful, but no
it's the will to live
that makes it so
