Value

a mute bargain struck between

two coins

one agreed to land on its head

another on its tail

Fat Chance betrayed

one landed straight up

and another went for a toss.

Seeing as how Destiny

beguiles men

and forces them to choose

the coins sought unity

nickels & cents together

made the strongest men weep

never again did they

submit to Fate

never again did they

rust or perish

for they had

what most men cherish.
