Tic Tac Toe by Buzah X

Tic Tac Toe

How can I have a fair shot when
you’ve had so many more tries?
I draw my circle and you drop four lines.
Or instead of being a six square grid you have twelve.
You tell me this game of chance is fair but the chances of you winning this game are the root of the square.
Trying to ban knotty hair so I will have to chop it.
The Less knots in your pocket the more damage.
With less tries how do we manage?
We see through different eyes but you try to make us live the same lives.
We did not create this game so why would we play the same?
You control the game so much we can’t even use our real names.
You control the game so much you even dictate our lanes.
Routes that have misled us,
Routes that have bled us,
Routes that embed us.
Well to these routes we say no and
we will start a new game of Tic Tac Toe.
