Games of Chance & Lessons on Luck

A battle easily won
Or gains effortlessly gotten
Will inevitably make one spoiled rotten

And to harvest without labour
Or hold post without tenure
Is like finding fortune without preparation for its reception

So to risk what is one’s own
In order to gain what is another’s
Is a will-o’-the-wisp and the mark of a gambler

All things considered, a result of the subjective value placed on random outcomes or what we call luck
Is different from the objective reality of the unpredictable manifestations which we call chance
Still, luck is but chance seen through the lens of a good or bad end
