(007june2 07) Forehead Shitzky

Rating: 2.7

How can a person feel arrogant?
Even the most powerful of us
can see everyone else's face
but his own.

It’s like we’re each holding
a lollipop we can’t lick.

Life is a little
like Forehead Shitzky,
the card game
we played in junior high,

where everyone holds one card
face up on his forehead
without looking,
then bets.
