The Gambler

You feel quite clever don't you? Raking in the dough.
You outsmarted the wise, Tricked the thief, And eluded death.

You feel quite scared don't you? Pacing to and fro.
Your lies have found you, your debts have too, and you feel death coming for you.

You feel quite lucky don't you? Lying to avoid a blow.
You cheated the devil, took his gold, and eluded death

You feel quite light don't you? Smiling as you go.
You lived a full life, righted your wrongs, and death has found you.

You feel quite clever don't you? Waiting at the gate.
You took death's hand with no fear, left behind a world of tears, and heaven awaits you.

Once a gambler but no more, for you have out grown the faults of your youth. Once a thief but no more, for you have returned all you have taken. Now a good man but no more, for you have entered where no living person can go.

You feel quite clever don't you?

-Aggister
