you want it
but can’t get it
search but can’t find it

if you have it
somebody’ll grab it
if you owe it
you’ll have to pay
if you want to play
while ‘they’ have their say
with the lay of the game
and you’re one card shy
of making the big strike

never enough to go round
or satiate the taste
of a hungry hound
for more than he can chew
or swallow in one bite

have your say
make your play
go about your day
perhaps a way
will be found
before you make
your last sound
