Historic gambles on massive scales
Trusting systems
Trusting instincts
Trusting signals
Trusting people
Trusting the universe

All in
all or nothing
double all or double nothing
something for nothing
nothing to lose
riding and dying

The bigger the stakes
the better the gamble
The better the gamble
the bigger the payout

And it will always be about
the payout and
the thrill of the roll
The tinkling of jackpots

To even create back-up plans
Contingencies just in case
Is only evidence one never
fully believed in one's initial idea
Failure from launch
inferiority inherent

Juggling eggs in a single baster
Believing systems
Believing instincts
Believing signals
Believing people
Believing the universe
