The Grand National Makes Us Weep

to be a gambler
is to claim to be
a prophet
a shaman
a predictor of
the future

to be a gambler
is to be insane
delirious
mad
because you know
you are right

seer
soothsayer
clairvoyant
fortune teller
diviner
prognosticator

the feeling is
sublime
is perfect
is something greater
than life

until you lose
but even that’s
okay

because you had
that feeling
that gift
and for that moment
you were so
true
energised
genius

so next time
next time
you tell yourself

it’s no wonder
the gods
are pissed
