Snake and Ladder

by Venkat

again in Peter’s format!

Hopping moment to moment

Life unexpectedly turns

As a pair of dice

In our palm

At some points

We have a chance

To climb up a ladder

Yet at others we face danger

Swallowed by life’s ugly fangs

We slither deep downside

Eaten as by snake

Into the past

In this wave

Of ups and downs

It flows as a constant tide

Forever in our mysterious life


A game of snake and ladder
