Monopoly, game of Life

Monopoly, game of life – play it Monopoly, childhood board game, moves as per dice Life, real game, moves as per the game one plays As grew older, realities faced squarely Had semblances with the board’s pictorial squares Throw of dice decided the destiny on board Unlike birth, upbringing, circle, efforts dictating destiny in Life Owner, Banker, borrower, culprit, all characters ended with the game Unlike Life’s characters that makes one play different games Each day, new game, different victor and vanquished Life’s each moment full of mystery, self winner or loser Dice calling the shots, tossing not manipulated Life full of manipulation at each step to win the race How I wish Life having remote semblance with board game Any situation not lasting beyond the game Each day disconnected with yesterday, tomorrow Limited spells of joy or sorrow Life, Monopoly like game – live it ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By Hitendra Mehta May 2011 HM in Members Contest – Monopoly, the Game of Life by Judy Konos ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Hitendra, the "game" does change as we mature, doesn't it. Congratulations on your success in the contest. Hope you have a wonderful time on your tour!! Just returned from a vacation last Thursday and wish I was still out there enjoying the sea. Love, Carolyn

An interesting poem you wrote on this topic, Hitendra. I see pros and cons to real life being like Monopoly and also to life NOT being that way. Way to take the challenge and play THIS game on Soup!
