Title: Odds

Give me five good reasons why I shouldn’t
And I’ll give you one good reason why I should
Sometimes you just have to go with your gut
And ignore the cacophony of ifs and buts
Like now for example, my mind’s made up
Could be I’m on to a winner, or backing a pup
Who’s to tell? There’s a swell of opinion here
I might as well go with my own. Don’t groan
too loudly. I’ll surely take it as it comes.
And as for you, my so called chums; crumbs
don’t feed the starving, you know.
You stay here
and I’ll go
what I can do.
