The Penny

Posted by Terry McNichols

Whenever you're called on to make up your mind
and you're hampered by not having any,
the best way to solve the dilemma, you'll find,
is simply by spinning a penny.
No - not so that chance shall decide the affair,
while you're passively standing there moping;
but the moment the penny is up in the air,
you suddenly know what you're hoping.
- Piet Hein, poet and scientist (1905-1996)
