The poem, actually, has little to nothing to do with God. The man telling
the poem, Tom Beatty, is discussing life in general. He personifies life,
saying, "... Life's a gambler..." Tom Beatty is telling us how life places
obstacles in our way; Life makes "the percentage hard to conquer"; Life
"stacks the cards to catch our weakness"; all poker metaphors. Tom also
comments that you have 70 years to play, meaning 70 years till you die, and
if you can not "win", at life, then you fail. It is as simple as that.
Taking this poem and turning it into some context against God is missing
the entire point all together. This poem comes from a play called Spoon
River, which contains around 200 poems based on deceased people both real
and fictional. It is always good to do your research before commenting on

I think this a very sad outlook on life. The author does not seem to
understand God. God does not stack the cards against us - we do that
ourselves as we choose to ignore Him and go our own way (sin). In fact,
God so loves you that He gave His Son, that if you would just trust in Him
, He will forgive your sins and grant you the free gift of eternal life. I
would love to discuss this with you more. Love, Pastor Tom Beatty,
