        A week, a lifetime
        Monday’s gambler runs to the cash machine
        Draws out his cash all crisp and clean
        (Checking behind him to ensure he’s unseen)
        Tuesday’s gambler has a bit of a memory loss
        Yesterday didn’t happen, for today he will be the boss
        He has a trick or two up his sleeve
        No need to grieve, he definitely won’t thieve.
        Wednesday’s gambler is on the up
        Phew, No need yet for the death cup
        Even Stevens is the name of the game
        To walk away now would be such a shame
        He’s definitely still in the frame.
        Thursday’s gambler is getting weary
        No longer is he so cheery
        Too many questions are being asked
        Go away and leave him alone this has to be masked
        Friday’s gambler feels so so sick in the head
        Starting to wish he was dead
        Saturdays Gambler prays for help
        All inside him is great big yelps
        Sunday’s gambler has a major discovery
        It’s called recovery.

            just need to add
            Sunday’s discovery of recovery
            Can be the cycle
            The running title
            For this we are all entitled
            No need for weekly recitals
            Sunday, Monday any day,
            Gambling is our plight.
            Recovery is our right
            Every day in every way.
            Delay delay delay
