blow by blow

I’m kinda cranky with the universe these days cuz I’m not gittin what I want! I’ve tried being patient, but my patience is being tried: it’s been like this for awhile now. I know, I know first world problem…

blow by blow


“give me what i want!” i cry
but no one seems to listen
as distant diamond valentines
in the moonlight glisten

i shake my fist, and stamp my foot
all to no avail
there’s no way out, no exit sign
in this demented jail

we’re fools to think we’re in control
the plot has all been written
but to the players in the piece
remains forever hidden

gods and angels dance on pins
they’ve got no regrets
it’s just a game of destiny
c’mon now place your bets

some will win and others lose
give the dice a throw
jump in the ring or grab a seat
endure the blow by blow
