We grow up quite lacking
Degrees and scores and thoughts
Of schools of thoughts

So we try a lot of guessing
Games, and lose
A lot of dice

I like it! My favorite part is how you said we lose dice instead of money. It makes it seem like you're just losing something worthless, when in all reality people lose their lives over gambling. It's a cool mentality for the poem. Great job!

I knew once I read one of your poems that I wouldn't be able to just stop there. Why haven't more people read this and commented? I think it's genius :P The whole idea behind it, the execution of it down on paper (or the computer)...everything. 5/5 :)
