Day 38: Foucault Plays Monopoly

You will never find a 
“Get out of Jail” card, 
inspired by the Parker Bros game, 
as you cast the dice and land
on the square with the police who
sends you to the corner 
with the man behind bars, 
holed up for a couple of turns 
as everyone gets by 
with this business of winning. 
That card has long been picked by those
who started the game before you did, 
and so poor fellow, never believe
the game is fair, 
take the consequence
of your moves, 
obey the will of the dice. 
Some people are born to win the game, 
and others to die just playing it.
