Fortune

Fortune- in Reality-

favors not just the Brave,

but those with Wit enough

to regard the Grave.

 

Where does Lady Luck reside?

Not by my side,

not even a block away.

Perhaps in some golden country

kissed by light of the sun,

which is obviously far

from my current dwelling.

The Intonation- of the Wind-

scraped against my Ear-

but what Fortune that it was

the Last thing I would Hear-

It is impractical to try

and gaze into eternity.

For what I know of the world-

it does not give much to see.

 

Crystal balls and palms are,

too often, scams and schemes,

in which even those who own them

will soon find they believe.
