Ray Bitar's lament

The news today is that former Full Tilt Poker CEO Ray Bitar is in need of a heart transplant. I couldn't help but be reminded of a famous song from an equally famous movie....

When a man’s under indictment
There should be some excitement
And yet I’m torn apart
Just because I’m a-pleadin’
That I coulda had my freedom,
If I only had a heart.

I’d be happy, I’d be mellow,
I’d be really quite a fellow
With such a new restart.
I’d make up with all the payors,
Reimburse all the players,
If I only had a heart.

I’d reclaim the CEO spot
Refurbish the old yacht
And this time play it smart.
I’d suck up to Howard’s allies
Fill the board up with our own guys
If I only had a heart.
