Day 2

Bored Games

What luck? None, scientists would say
but every Christmas at Monopoly
my brother rolled dice, getting
double sixes beyond statistical possibility.
In later life he gained and lost a job each year
became a father and husband by accident.
We reap what we sow. Snakes and Ladders
the name of the game of life
the difference between
stupidity and serendipity in Scrabble.
