The broken gambler and the horrible solution…

A gambler, one day, found himself in all sorts of trouble. He’d bet heavily, repeatedly, inadvisably… and he had lost everything. The loan sharks were polite and well dressed; he feared for his future. And now they had caught him

The gambler begged for mercy – it wasn’t his fault! Others had used his money  and they’d lost more than him! He had bet on things which had worked in the past, it wasn’t his fault that they had stopped paying out..! In truth he had never understood why they had paid out in the first place but a sure thing was a sure thing…

But the men who wanted their money would not be dissuaded. Pay up, they said, or we will hurt you. They smiled as they said this but they had no mercy nor care about his plight.

The gambler cried out, terrified, but then stopped and thought… And though he would not have said he was an evil man he asked a horrible question…

“How much will you give me for my kids?”
