Gambling

“The Gambler”

“One more roll,” says the gambler,
unaware that the game is rigged.
“One more shot,” thinks the gambler,
like the game will somehow turn.
But the cards are against him,
the dice and wheel too.
Even after he is cold,
he still places his bet,
and the players begin to look away.
“I know this is the one,” the gambler says once again,
“I know on this one I’m going to win.”
But it lands on black, or a Queen,
or an eight or on the wrong horse.
He’s squandered again.
