"Branded on your heart the name / Burning in the smoking sky / Love cannot afford to die / Today so sit down take your cards and play"

Transcendental Sonnet #1314:

Magister Ludi / Betting It All


Goose and gander

Tit for tat in love and war

Raise no dander

All is fair if this then that

Which is will be as it has been before


Are you in or are you out?

You roll the dice and the game

Is on

Once you join the game all doubt

Is gone


Branded on your heart the name

Burning in the smoking sky

Love cannot afford to die

Today so sit down take your cards and play
