Ode to Nike – Goddess of Victory
Do you think there’s coincidence in life?
That all our lives are ruled by chance?
Are whims and chance just like a knife?
You think randomness leads this dance?
No, your life is not written in stone
So don’t fear that there are no choices
At times randomness does set the tone
But only for you and I, our mortal voices
But there are other beings up in the sky
Ancient Gods from times long past
Like Nike, the winged Goddess that can fly
Rules like chance don’t hold her fast
Nike doesn’t play by such mortal rules
She is victorious in all things with a whim
In all her games she cares not for clues
That’s all Nike’s known since birth, is win
