We can't lose, baby!

After John 17:13

The game is rigged,
the players already winners,
the dice loaded, the numbers fixed,
the outcome determined.
The house has fixed the game, and
we can’t lose, baby!
The stakes – huge – are covered.
The house rolls and makes the spin.
The outcome, the result, known,
the cards are marked and played.
The players win and keep on winning.
We can’t lose, baby!
We bring the chips to the bank
and the banker smiles, pulling
in the chips and handing back
the dollars, the coins, the gold,
paying twice what was brought.
All we have to do is stand there
and accept it.
We can’t lose, baby!
