Gamble: FOWC with Fandango

Take a chance

Have you ever thrown a penny  
in a wishing well?  
Did you get to see it  
before it even fell?  
When you play the tables  
you watch it slip away  
Gambling takes your pennies  
And you can’t help but play.  
The only difference here now  
is what to do when done 
at least when you are wishing  
you’re bound to have some fun.  
The slots are like the tables,  
the more you bet you win  
but if you bet your savings  
the tears come quickly in.  
For when you leave your money  
to simply throw away  
you might as well go get a wish  
it’s bound to make your day.
