My head feels like a tombola, spinning around, will there be a winner or is it full of losing ways?

See a raffle ticket, buy a strip, you always like to win

Have a go, just one time, before you throw it in the bin

Slight addiction, want to see, if the chance is yours today

Just one more then, whats the harm, get involved and have a play

 

Are the numbers ripe for picking, is luck on your side

See yet another loser, can't walk away but should for pride

People talking of the gambler, who wants to win it all

What to do with so many prizes, keep them like trophies on the wall

 

One by one the numbers roll in, as he puts each one away

What should happen if he drops one, can he juggle them today

Someone offers help to carry and disregard the crap

Gambler notices hes greedy, others feet are starting to tap

 

Angry faces, some are outraged as they see that they were cheated

Just cos gambler couldnt stop it, even though he was defeated

All the prizes he should give now, to calm the bruised and battered

Choosing just one for himself, the one that really mattered
