        Those gambling shops are everywhere
        Corals, william hills a betfred there
        It’s in the paper and on the Tele
        Taking food from our children’s belly
        Greedy And sneaky is what you will see
        Those gambling devil’s inside of me
        ‘Leave me alone. You’ve had the lot’
        Bingo or lottery. Cards or roulette
        Football or horse. What dog will win next
        I should never have played that very first time
        If I won that pot it all could have been mine
        Those sneaky greedy devil’s, laughing at me
        All that time I was blind to see
        What placing a bet has done to me…

          The numbers you pick, random or not
          The higher the stake, the bigger the pot
          Odd or even, red or black
          The dealers are trained, it’s part of their act
          The cameras are watching to see your next move
          Waiting to see how much money’s on you
          No more bets, the wheel has spun
          I went with friends and it was all for fun
          But now on my own the nightmare has begun

            Great poems, Shaun
            Now that we know what gambling does to us, let’s kiss it goodbye and walk away
