♠ Ballad Of Gunner The Gambler: His Final Effort ♠

His addiction takes him over to
the bank he did business with.
He brings along the essentials;
A forty five and a laundry bag.

He stands outside his old bank;
He hesitates as he contemplates
and complicates what could be
his final effort to become wealthy.

He asks himself the question of
'Is my next move worth the risk? '
He surveys the people inside
before making his conclusion.

'No...no it isn't...but...is it a risk
if I know I will get away with it? '

Michael, this is an interesting poem and an equally interesting moral. You can always be tempted, the conscience kicks in and puts the element of doubt to stop you. Lovely flow to this poem. Top marks from me. Thanks for sharing it my friend. David
