Whose Idea Was This?

THE GAME

Let’s play. I’ll start the game;
You join in when you dare.
We’ll take turns, if you want.
No rules, so we both win.

This way there’ll be no blame
When we forget to care,
To breathe, to eat. Don’t taunt
Us fools as we begin.

Someday I’ll learn your name.
We’ll meet. The when and where
A dice roll. Let luck flaunt
Her jewels. It’s love, not sin.

I’ll pray; you do the same.
The gods will keep things fair.
No spirits stay to haunt;
No ghouls let themselves in.

We’ll take turns, if you want.
No rules, so we both win.
