"Loopholes and Destinies"
The thread of fate is unbreakable,
but it always has loopholes.
Clotho smiles, and pushes her hook
into the burlap backing of her rug.
For every prophecy, there is
some way to avoid it and
get by on a technicality.
For every impenetrable protection,
there is a donut hole it doesn't cover.
For every curse, there is
a means of breaking it.
For every all-knowing program,
there is a glitch in the matrix.
Lachesis winks, and
her silver needle twinkles
as she crochets.
The hero's journey is not
about destiny, self-discovery,
getting the girl, or even
saving the world.
At its heart, the quest is really
about finding the loopholes in fate.
Atropos laughs, and
sharpens her scissors.
