Let’s Make A Deal

When Monty poses his problem
you should always switch doors.
It’s counter-intuitive
but the math proves
you’re more likely to win
a Brand New CAR!

If the received wisdom
could be so wrong
maybe two birds in a bush
are worth more than the one
in your hand.

Perhaps discretion
is not the better
part of valor.

And if I shouldn’t look
before I leap,
I’ll have another slice
of blueberry pie
and find someone who sells
lottery tickets.
