The Game of Life

Life.
I have it.
You have it.
It’s not contagious though,
Life can’t infect something lifeless.
You can share it with others,
Or throw it away.
Milton Bradley turned it into a game.
My car has one blue peg, nothing else.
The door is unlocked,
But no pink peg wants a ride just now.
Maybe once I get to the millionaire space
I can get a hollow pink peg to tag along.
But Life is about the journey
So I’d rather not do this alone.
Not sure I would know
What to do if I had someone.
The last one nearly did me in.
I suppose I can be an only peg.
A lonely peg.
For now.
