The Bet
Oh, if I gamble on tomorrow,
I'll bet on all the days I own
Around the table I sit
A smoky circle of steely men;
One lays down an Ace of Spades
A Queen of Hearts cries out his name
This time I feel a loss, losing the winner's hand
I missed out on tomorrow, that's all the days I own
But a Queen of Hearts married an Ace of Spades, and I went home

I gambled with my life on the line for too long. Keeping my cards close to the vest now and hedging my bets.

Nice one, SC.
