There are always
on my life’s way
gambol with a heartless devil,
it’s dicey and can lead to ruin,
even becoming addictive.
for example, favor the house,
the chances of winning… doubtful –
and rarely brings true good fortune.
are indeed one in a million –
countless tickets make the jackpot,
yet few tickets are a “winner”.
despite the hype, “winners” don’t seem
to be happy for very long…
mostly miserable seems more apt.
You have to be in it to win it
is a sucker’s bet –
more fitting; be in it to lose it.
