The house always wins PDF Print E-mail
Written by Robin Temple   

It's not about survival...
It's a game of death.
From your arrival...
Till your last breath.
You can try to cheat...
But the house always wins.

There is no retreat...
Some folks tally sins.
It's not about the game...
It's not even how you play.
The traps are all the same...
You see them every day.
It's learning the why and the how.
It can take forever but it's always now.
We're harvested just as we are grown.
Robbed of all the wisdom we have ever known.

Love rt.
