Why not take the risk?
Why not trade the golden disc
For a plainly magical pebble?
Why not take the captive
From the dungeon? Stealing?
I rather call it liberation!
Success defying danger
Explodes into the zenith hour,
The time to savor drop by drop
The sweet wine of celebration!
Why not perhaps a price to pay?
Does the leaf of October not
Balance the bud of May?
Numbers add up. Why not do the math?
The plus is fine, but the minus gets it bought,
The wine's the sweetest for the grapes of wrath.
So still I'm glad I played the odds,
Though turning sour, yet giving the blessed hour,
And I turn back to thank you, my fair gods!
