Gambling -/- Labour

Labour

Hunger eggs on everybody
Slothfulness eats stones

Before commencing dociliating exertions
Sharpen tools well

From making good beginnings
Future workload halved

Gruel obtained by graft
Jeweled, ambrosial food

***

Subjection to unnecessary workloads
Deprives intellectual improvement

Better spending idle weeks
Before profitless work

Complete today’s work today
Tomorrow’s work tomorrow

Gambling

Dress, wealth, food, clothing:
Maliferous gambling destroys

Destinies of lydian lineages
Devastated by casinos

Ruin, lies, misery, scroogery:
Accompany ceaseless chancery

When gambling spears purses
Starvation’s curse appears

***

Tho’ gambling sometimes profitable
Winnings merely fish-hooks

Gain one, lose thousands,
Gambling’s irrefutable truth

Gamblers, during losing streaks,
Always gamble more
