Game of Chance

Some believe they tempt the devil
when they play games of chance.

Lady Luck is the mistress of evil
dressed in bright colors and fun
leading many to shame and ruin.

She reels her 
victims in with charm
offering favors to the unsuspecting
long after the game is done,

when she has a frim grip,
she promises happier days
with harmless entertainment
until she has their immortal soul.

Eventually everything is lost but
they stay because they remember
when she blessed them
and luck was coming their way.
