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

"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.
