The stakes are high, the odds are great
The roll of dice will seal my fate.
To win or lose – it’s in the cards
Dame Lady Luck bestows rewards.
With all to lose; with all to gain,
I gladly choose to play Love’s game.
Let come what will, let come what may,
My skills all use this game to play.
The highest bet I’ll bravely call.
To win her hand, I’ll stake it all.
Let’s not forget Kenny Roger’s poetic ballad, “The Gambler.” Enjoy.
