A Game to Play

Why play games of chance?
When betting
accumulating debt
the winners
never win.

When betting
what they have not
a roll of the die
will predict thy fate
losers never lose.

Three card molly cons
the winner
to lose
what he had not
to lose.

So is life
a game of chance
a lucky winner
has to lose
if not today
surely tomorrow.
