Love is Blackjack

"Is it better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all?"

Consider if you may...

You have been playing life's table,
been taking your chances and losses,
but are still stuck in your
seemingly infinite losing streak.

What will it be fella? Ma'am?

To play another hand
Know when to quit?

To take another card
Know you're going to fold?

Unfortunately the answer is uncertain.
For you may believe your twenty will beat the house,
but then the house goes and gets a twenty-one,
and you continue your streak.

In the end of things you
ask yourself this while adding up your
pros and cons, your wins and losses.
When it comes down to nothing unless you
managed to hit the big jackpot, the new pair of shoes.
Then, and only then, do you know what it was really worth.
