Rock Paper Scissors


The world is always playing
rock paper scissors
running familiar cycle
we all know the way,

the design wasn't meant
to have kings and pawns
its only what we make
and only what we say,

though we are ultimately
just pieces of the sea
each drop standalone
still all must play,

the mighty rocks fall
before slender supple paper
one of life's switchbacks
so long, tough break...
