Manipulative Hands Of Fate (Audio)

Poetry By: Scribblings of a middle aged mad man

Trapped in the grip of fate, as the puppet master dictates the tune and the chorus..

The manipulative hands of fate

have a plan I'd like to borrow

Just to steal a peek

at the agenda for tomorrow

As the minutes meander

and buoyant hours flow

A voice from the future

replies a firm NO

Forced to wait

and watch time collapse

Denied crystal ball

and predictive maps


The manipulative hands of fate

have chosen my path

Branched the avenue with tears

and a single leafed laugh

A prisoner to their will

a puppet on strings

Captive to the motion

their direction brings

Gripped by Moira

and the disco of circumstance

I learn all the moves

as I am forced to dance
