GAMBLE ON LIFE

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

 

I always get antsy

when I’m in a casino

I don’t wanna lose

all my money

in a stupid slot machine

 

I’d much rather

sit in a bar

and watch TV

and drink draft beer

 

take in a ball game

and pound down

brew after brew

until the sun goes down

 

I see the lights

and glitter of the casino

and I’d much rather

go to a concert

and drink and smoke dope

 

I’d rather grab a meal

at a Chinese restaurant

and roll the dice

and see snake eyesw

 

I’d much rather

gamble away my life

in an entirely

different manner than that
