Once upon a time I heard a news reporter quote a politician who said, “We don’t want people riding the subway with their fingers crossed.  We want to assure them that it’s safe.”

……and I wondered, why not?   I seem to go through life with my fingers crossed.

With fingers crossed and an open heart

I make my way through the angles and curves

Though no one can ever assure me it’s safe

No matter what branch of government he serves

Some days and nights I consider the cost

and make shaky plans to get them uncrossed
