The Fable of Fate

scholars and philosophers claim

we are all victims of fate

in some big game

nothing is foreordained

our future is unwritten

we choose our own lane

how we spend each day

dealing with reality

and sometimes play

fate is not cast in concrete

framing your name

on destiny’s side street

I don’t care what the poets say

we are not bound by fate

or any other written cliché

and what pundits say
