at spes non fracta



No bad news in the mail
Nor anything to go to jail
For not now or not yet

Invisibility
Would seem to be the policy
Of those who know regret

But I can still see

When having lost the best
First then the worst having cost the rest
Life and death again having met

There between good and well
Where heaven at taps shot craps with hell
And I always lost their bet

No more games for me

Never having been a betting man
Better having been the best I can
