A poem for online bingo fansAdded 2010-09-30 11:02:13
I'm trying hard not to be downhearted
As I sit here playing online bingo games.
Lady Luck has long departed
She's smiling on other's names.
I tell myself not to fret
It's surely temporary.
I'll put on just one more little bet
hoping this time it'll be me.
I sigh and light another cig
tho' I know it's bad for m'health.
But any minute I'm gonna win big
and I'll be counting all my wealth.
Then I'll get so very fit
All my bad habits I'll ditch,
I might even go jogging a bit
Tho' maybe not, I don't wanna get stitch.
As I dream about what I'll win
I get to one to go
I smile and think "wayhay ... I'm in"
But then I think "Oh NO"
It's gone to someone else again
Like so many times before,
And I recognise the name,
And I head for the door.
''Enough's enough for today'' I mutter
It's more than a body can bear.
"I've had enough of THAT site" I utter
But tomorrow I'll be there.
I'll be ready for it all again
tho' gambling is a sin.
And losing is really such a pain
But maybe tomorrow I'll WIN !!!!!
