Saturday’s Word: Fortune’s Wheel

The Wheel of Fortune is a card

From any tarot deck.

It represents the ups and downs,

The triumphs and the wrecks,

The cycle in which Fortune smiles,

Then turns to wring your neck.


Oh, Fortune’s Wheel goes ’round and ’round,

At times, it’s hard to bear.

But then you hear, all loud and clear,

Her answer to your prayers.

Just remember: it’s her game,

And she does not play fair.


—Paula, the Wireless Wizard
