Do you feel lucky?

Misty looking like a professional gambler at the card table.

Flip a coin, call it.
A gamble you’re willing to take.
You wanna bet? Throw the dice.
Is this you? Would you trust luck?

The luck of the draw; win or lose.
Never quite in reach; elusive.
Chasing that pot of gold.
The Irish luck at rainbows’ end.

The pull of a gamble.
The draw of the cards.
The disappointments, losing.
The exhilaration in winning.

Good luck, bad luck: win or lose.
Lessons learnt; easy come… easy go.
One minute – luck on my side.
The next – luck has left me.

One should not depend on luck.
Luck is fleeting, no guarantees.
Know when to quit, never look back.
Fold your cards, walk away.
