Nothing For You

There's nothing for you today, the post informs,
and wouldn't it be lovely if it's true?
Though fate will send catastrophes in swarms,
there's nothing for you.

Attentively awaiting every cue,
the gods are wearing servant uniforms.
For you today, the balmiest of views:

while others may endure undue alarms,
or notes that prove the beautiful untrue,
the love letter that instantly transforms,
there's nothing for you.
