Secrets of a Clever Gambler

Take a chance
Place your bet
Clever gambler
That you are

Streets swept clean
Apples ripe on the tree
Stars blink bright
Flesh raw 
Men that are not free

Fill the basket
Put away the saw
Shake hands
Work together
Build a nest
Of flesh and bone

Throw the dice
Count the dots
On ivory
Black on white
Take a chance
Place your bet
Clever gambler
That you are


Prompt:  chance, nest, secret, clever, swept, ripe, 
blinked, stars, basket, flesh, saw, hand

  5. I like that you begin and end with the same lines. It gives a rhythm to your poem.

  6. There is a change of style in this piece which gets right to the double six..but still leaves me thinking of who is the gambler..
