A GAMBLER

 Spin the wheel, maybe a roll of the dice,

 A bad hand at cards, so it's said, you'll lose 
 Your shirt.

 Bet on a game, football, basketball, baseball, 
 It's all the same,

 Your wallet is empty, credit cards are O.K.

 Horses are great, this time you feel lucky inside,

 At the finish line, a house could be on the line.

 Deal in drugs, surely a gambler you'll be,

 If it's not the law, a dead man you might be.

 A car thief is a risk, money at your feet,

 End up in prison, oh! what a life you lead.

 Ask of a loan shark, a favor please,

 Put up your life, no friend indeed.

 A gambler, a gambler, in each one of us may be,

  What risks do you take for all that you need.

           Keith Garrett
