ROLL OF THE DICE

©Vince Pawless 2019


When your on a roll, you’re on a roll. When your hot, you’re hot. But when you’re not, you ain’t. If you know the ropes you can’t be beat. But you can lose it in a heartbeat. If you’re tuned in you know the tune. If you’re zoned you’re zeroed in like an arrow from a bow. 

If you’re on top of it, you’re on top of the world. When you’re the lead dog, at least, there’s a view. Be defined by the people you know but, be defined by the people you meet. Screech like a raptor, bark like a semiconductor, talk like a commentator. Shine like a silver, hotter than polished steel. Speak thunder, shout out loud, rain down from the sky. Billow like fog, cover ground like a troop movement, take the snap like a quarterback. 

Make it happen, make it so, make it all go away. Make it be.tter than it was. Run the next while, stand your ground, stop on a dime and give ‘em change. Stick your neck out, risk, but know the drill. Do it for yourself, do it for others, do it because it’s right. If you do it, then I don’t have to do it. Fortune favors the brave roll of the dice.
