Cushion First
by Mark Twain

-------

When all your days are dark with doubt;
And drying hope is at its worst;
When all lifeís balls are scattered wide,
With not a shot in sight, to left or right,
Donít give it up;
Advance your cue and shut your eyes,
And take the cushion first.

-------

A billiard table is that richest of metaphors,
by turns a theatre, an altar, touchstone, gauntlet,
ritual ground, a gunfighter's high noon, a refuge,
a verdant landscape for balls to scatter and rest in meaningful synchronicity,
a classroom, a karma dance, mirror of moods, a guide and trusted friend...

-- from grissim's "billiards"

Buddy said when there just isn't any good option whack hell out of the balls and see what happens! When Buddy whacked the balls hard as he could I suspect they were scared enough to hunt holes that weren't even there.
