A game of numbers

 When the penny drops, into the slot

the wheel of life spins then stops,

and you realise it’s a game of numbers,

and a press of a shiny button.


We are all players in life’s game,

and the clock’s ticking, just as surely

as the contour lines deepen

on your hands. But we have time?


Remember that in the morning

when life’s banality intrudes,

and you frown and want to sink

lower on the pile of life’s dung heap.


No, don’t spare a thought

for your silly troubles and woes.

Live, love, look around and be glad.

Your number’s not up, well…not today.
