Place Your Bets

 

The board game waits years on an attic chair.

His finger draws a circle on its dusty box.

On the top is written THE WAGER

 

He lifts off the lid and unfolds the board as

dust rises in a light shaft. Printed on the board:

GOD IS                       YES                       NO

GOD IS NOT:             YES                       NO

 

No dice, pieces, numbers, cards, chips, spinning arrows.

 

There is a single printed instruction below:

WEIGH THE GAIN AND THE LOSS

 

What the hell kind of a game is this?

 

He closes and plops it on top of a Monopoly game.
