A Chance Dance!

So by chance you might have thought of this. Maybe by chance you got bliss. Maybe by chance you missed getting hit by a bus. Chance just has so much fuss.

Chance has odds.
No fishing rods.
No fake things like luck.
Odds make or break a buck.

Chance encounter takes place.
A chance you see a familiar face.
What are the odds of that?
Sure beats the cat.

Work them out.
Math isn't what I shout.
What you want me to?
Okay, just for you.

One million to one.
Your chance of dying by the sun.
Two million to three,
Your chance of dying while you pee.

Don't you love odds?
Are they made up by cods?
One person dies by this.
So now your chances are this bliss.

Chance of winning the jackpot.
Pffft better chance of catching dry rot.
Or turning into a robot.
Maybe getting hit by lightning on the spot.

See, chance can be compared as well.
Doesn't chance make all things swell?
What is the chance you agree?
Fifteen to one I see.

Wow, you are mean.
Such chance aversion at my scene.
You don't like math?
Prefer knowing the chance of dying in the bath?

Chance runs every place,
Odds from here to outer space.
Chance of aliens probing you?
About seven billion to two.

I knew you'd want that stat.
No need to thank the cat.
Chances are I am done.
Any chance you had fun?

Chance and odds seem to always be at play. But pfffft to the odds they give I say. They are pulled out of thin air sometimes. Get better advice from mimes. Yep, say nothing at all. That is the chance at your hall. When numbers are involved chance is at play, like the lottery at any bay. The dying sort could happen whenever. You just up the chances with each endeavor. Isn't chance worse than a case of gas? Chances are no when talking about my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

    What are the odds of making number 2?
    Well really, I don't give a poo.
    80% of statistics are fabricated,
    And if you're caught out, you'll be hated
    Think I'd rather flat-out lie
    Then try to make a statistic fly.

  9. "So by chance you might have thought of this"
    Then just go on the winding road as you please
    Chances come in a flash
    Grab them up as you dash

  15. Taking a chance means actually doing something
    to set the wheels in motion..chance won't come
    rolling to your door. Now, I do believe in playing a

  16. A chance at the roulette wheel
    is not my kind of deal.
    The odds are not in my favour
    so I do not savour
    taking a chance on where I must bet

    a kupie doll.
    I would rather fall
    in love and take that chance

    I'll take a gander at that
    bit about chance

    Chance is a turd.
