With some imagination, and common sense
and an understanding of human ways,

one can figure every circumstance down
to one, or two of the most probable outcomes.

Sure, it may leave a somewhat wide margin
for a total, rock-n-sock 'em, out of the box surprise!

But, I can say for certain
that without a doubt, that's what makes life interesting.

Should a long-shot outcome, come to fruition;
then that's just fate shaking up the dice,

mixing things up, as it were;
and the worse that can happen is an anecdote.

For instance, I was thinking about God.....the other day,
and how.....if we're made in his image,

and we've all got a variance of a sense of humor;
then, what exactly strikes God, funny?

My intuition is that, it might be somewhat "eclectic";
plus, I'm convinced He, or She may have added a humorous category, or two.

Such as, sarcasm, irony, and slapstick to name a few.
Oh well.....what are you going to do?

Attention, everybody ! Pa-da-de-dump-de-dum !
He'll be here all week !
