Each Gamble

Odds stacked against you

each time you believe

you have the winning bet.

It never pays out as you expect.

Somewhere anonymous

is your cover as you

retreat into that wilderness of

torn betting stubs and broken chips.

Each gamble becomes a debt

you can’t afford to settle.

House wins every time.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
