Jack an Ginger

My back breaks sitting upright in this chair

Worrying about my posture for future me

Maybe I’ll have another Jack and Ginger

That’ll make three


In times like these

Desperation and courage appear the same

But more is lost from indecision than wrong decision


We roll the dice

Despite the fact they’re loaded


No wonder we feel soulless


No wonder, indeed


The luckiest man on Earth

That’s a hard thing to prove


When talent itself it a genetic seven

You spend your whole life in fear

Of that bookending seven


But when it happens you pass the dice

With advice to the new guy

“Skip your turn, It ain’t worth it” 

And you’ll say your goodbye
