Rowving Smith


6 Six


It was you who went first
Because the die landed with a six
Rosy fingers
Moving the red button
One square at a time

To delay me from catching up
The blue button lazily followed
Ones and twos
Threes and fours
The game was slow

You decided to tease me more
By wiggling your tongue
Between those pearly teeth
Eyes wide open
And hissing like a snake

I hit the ladders
And you the snakes
But you won the game
Because we had
Reversed the rules
And the name of the game

Snakes took you up
And the ladders down
In the game of
Ladders and Snakes...!
