Playing for Survival

I watch six men playing games

Playing for the food that sates

Their hunger

And shelter

Don’t want to sleep outside during winter

In a tent that only fits so little

Playing for survival

Twenty four hours of fight

Twelve hours of night

Had only a couple of bites during dinner

Lose a game you get thinner

Playing for survival

Luck a counter measure

Working hard a failure

Goddess of Fortune be my saviour

Playing for survival

Needs is a must

Chance is lost tempted by lust

Game over.


This is a response to Daily Post One-Word Prompts: Survival. This was also inspired by the Korean variety show 2 Days & 1 Night.
