Limerick Ode To The Gambler

Three Word Wednesday asks us to use chance, entice, and savor in a poem. I’ve coaxed them into this limerick:

Limerick Ode To The Gambler
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A gambler enticed by the chance
Of a win does a dangerous dance:
He savors the thrill,
As he loses free will.
We all know how it ends in advance.

    Curiously the gambler will only remember his successes. His/her incredibly bad luck (aka stupidity) will not deter him from playing again.
