Tathaastu ("So be it")

The gods are watching.
The gods are listening.
And they draw their own conclusions
Then they say, “So be it.”

You may not be arrogant.
(Maybe a little too sure of yourself?)
You may not be drunk with success
(Maybe a little complacent?)
Just a little silly, a little stupid.
So they roll up their sleeves
Rub their hands in glee
And send you for a toss.

Do they want to see how you land?
The gods who test you
And the gods who give you the strength
To face that test
Are they the same?

Random thought: It may not be such a good idea to be always prepared for contingencies. Those contingencies might come just because you are prepared!
