Life is like a game of snakes and ladders

I have lived my life like a lottery
Tossing the dice on the ocean waves
Within the surge and swell of mockery

How wonderful it is to wake up and not know
Like a game of snakes and ladders
What life will bring you today, its your throw

What would life be if we knew our future?
Without trial and error, nor experiences
Bland, plain, no colour, nor magical conjure

Enjoy life it is a joy.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.


"God’s dice always have a lucky roll

"The world is the house of the strong. I shall not know until the end what I have lost or won in this place, in this vast gambling den where I have spent more than sixty years, dicebox in hand, shaking the dice."- Denis Diderot (1713–1784) (Elements of Physiology, “Conclusion

"The gold-digger in the ravines of the mountains is as much a gambler as his fellow in the saloons of San Francisco. What difference does it make whether you shake dirt or shake dice? If you win, society is the loser."- Henry David Thoreau

"I shall never believe that God plays dice with the world" - Albert Einstein ("Einstein, His Life and Times", Philipp Frank (1947))

"God does not play dice [with the universe" - Albert Einstein (Quoted by Banesh Hoffman in "Albert Einstein")

Well, Trinity
you almost threw snake eyes!
Do you think god uses loaded dice,
Is it wrong if we use loaded dice to increase the odds in our favour.

No, not to gamble for money, the loser might resent one using loaded dice - but in the game of fate, instead of leaving it all to chance use loaded dice.

You know to get a Suntan try the beach
If you want to reap, try sowing!
And if you don't wanna be hit by a train, don't stand on the tracks!

Live a little, love a lot
it's all part of the bigger plot
got to do all 1 can in 1s time slot

Play the game, fear no shame
dice with death, say my name
living fast, closer she came
the drop dead gorgeous chic & dame
