I was thinking just the other day
How betting expressions seem to play
An enormous role in daily speech;
The urge to gamble makes us reach
For newspapers to «know the form»
When the going's rough, who rides the storm?
In a hand of cards, what is the deal?
Life's like the spinning of a wheel.
«Let's take a chance» is often heard
Life can't be planned – that is absurd!
«When the chips are down»; we have no choice
Each of us has a gambler's voice!
