Karma is a bitch they say, as Lady Luck rolls her cursed die.
Chasing after rainbows while freezing rains pour out from the sky.
The odds are slim and the risk is high, but, still, you go all in,
Neverminding the price to pay for the cost of your eternal sin.
The deck has been stacked with those cards counted in vain,
This gamble of pleasure won’t pay out, causing you even greater pain.
A spin of the wheel, a pull of the lever, chips toppling across the table,
Anything to prove life can have the happy ending read in childhood fables.
The longing for a winning streak, a jackpot hit with shrill bells that ring,
Anything at all you’ll take in greed, just for once your supper you won’t have to sing.
The stars above in the heavens you bastardly curse have a much different plan,
For it takes far…
