Lots in the Grass
Gods gave forth domains
from dice-throws cheerfully thrown :
These deeds made for kings
strung and strewn about a golden necklace,
Goddess-worn by Love's Mistress.
Charters chance-laid-out, unstrung,
unfolded out-rolled domains
of opportunity handed out franchise
free for the taking, every kingdom's
mete met out to each king by measure,
and curious, game-glad, the Gods watched
who would what where, and how.
