Poetry: "Luck's a god"

Luck’s a god
And perhaps not the other way around,
The arbitrariness of it all invents the meaning
We distraughtly seek.

Your intellect’s a seed
That can wither on your mother’s manger.
Neither three kings nor a guiding star,
Just a few inches away from the manure of donkeys,
And you shall cease to be.

Luck’s an arbitrary rule
That favors a territory.
It is the tool of mendacity,
The mask of human apathy.

Luck behaves like particles
When observed,
It changes positions when measured,
Perhaps, Luck is a god’s clumsy gesture.

Nevertheless,
Despite Luck’s influence
And its perceived omnipotence,
Luck easily cowers
Under the Twin Thumbs of Persistence.
