[Poem] Hey, Einstein

"God does not play dice with the universe." 
- Albert Einstein

Playing dice in God’s universe
Doesn’t get you any closer to him.
Understanding craps
Does as much good as knowing old maids.
Random acts of kindness, like one-armed bandits
Have an uncertain payoff.
You can go fish, reach 21 and hit me,
But divine conversations occur
With all of the frequency of a royal straight flush
On a blue moon in the Year of the Dragon
During your final hour on death row, waiting for a pardon.

Unfortunately, beating those odds only happens if you play.

From Barrow, 2009

On March 19th, 1931, gambling was legalized in Nevada.
