Out Of Control

Question

Around and round you go

Against the grain you race

Before you fall off track

All are in their place

Yet uncertainty presides

Careering to and fro

Alternately albeit en route

Still in the end you show

is it roulette?

yes, indeedy DD, that is it.

Around and round you go

Against the grain you race - roulette wheel (usually wooden) spins in one direction and the ball (the "you" throughout) is thrown in the opposite direction

Before you fall off track

All are in their place - just before the ball falls off the upper track and into the area of the slots all bets must be placed

Yet uncertainty presides - strictly a game of chance

Careering to and fro - with the ball bouncing around the slots

Alternately albeit en route - colors and numbers alternate black/red and odd/even on the wheel and PoW - alternate letters of "albeit" are, in this case, l e t; then en route gives - rou let te

Still in the end you show - when the ball is finally still, the winning number is shown

Thanks to all who played along.
