Fate Lends a Hand






Is there such a thing as Fate?


Has it got a mind?


Has it got it in for you


To make your mind unwind?




Now it's going to make you late


On a vital day


Too much traffic on the road


Guess who's going to pay




Little woman just can't wait


'How did it go?


Did you get it, the raise?'


'No! Fucking no!'




Reproachful eyes now berate


The one who didn't score


Love has gone and flown away

    Fate can be a convenient excuse for our shortcomings, unless we were born with them!

    I can’t believe in anything, fate is tempting though, its tailored to convince, a terrible thing about human beings is we spend most of our time trying to discover ways to make ourselves feel fatalistic.

    I’d say most spend their time seeking security. There’s no such animal!
