On a table of roulette a fast feast has been laid
the famished are being offered an enticing bait
by means of the wheel spin a spurious promise
losers who eat with eyes are a subject of tease
until they are wiped out as the oracle could tell
predicting just about all that is about to prevail
when bettors push their luck they end up in jail
compulsive gamblers only have their soul to sell.
