The Game

i don’t like fighting with angels

i wish they would get on my side

or if they are, as they sometimes seem

i wish they’d explain

the rules of this game

it’s far too complex for me.


i heard all the rules

plainly spelled out

but it’s never as simple as that

even good acts have consequences

you didn’t foresee or expect

and each time i learn the next step

they spin the tables around

what was right last time

is suddenly wrong

and what was wrong

is shown to be better

it’s never the same story twice


maybe they just want clowns

it must get boring up there

and who am i

in there great holy schemes?

good for a laugh perhaps
