For day 16, I touched on the game theme with the “funny old game” that is life.
NaPoWriMo Day 16: The Game Called Life.
justice rings hollow
when it comes at a price.
A and START
as truth departs,
the cheat excludes the cheated.
But our world oft lacks an extra life
for whence one is defeated.
Yet a coin under the sofa
could serve as a token
to persevere – with records broken.
Atlantis slowly rises to evaporate despair…
for treasure only remains buried
if one leaves it there.
