every time you placed a bet
your still damn good
no ones gotten to you yet
they were sure they had you caught
you were quicker than they thought
you just turned your back and walked
life is not a crap shoot.
if anything, it's a slow hand of five card.
Poker faces and a round of new bets just when you think it's over.
Life doens't rest on the next throw...
"things" do and you are never going run out of "things"
Enjoy the game... and don't hesitate to play.
And if you have to go... someone can keep your seat warm.

The month with almost as many dead people as February.
