    It can be mastered by seniors or even a teen.
    Luck can bring you much green.

    But skill will take you over the top.
    Millions of wanna-bees, but few who are creme of the crop.
    Only the smart ones know that the red light means stop.

    In the end, will you make the call?
    Will you go away, or will you go for it all?


    what is it

    what is it
    driving (a car).

    Most fits.

    I am just assuming that with in the end you mean when the vehicle breaks down. the call for help would then also make sense going away would be possible.

    Going for it all still is a long shot,... but....it means you keep driving the car downhils????

    Green = money?
    The second stanza sounds like a gambling reference, and with the stuff about call at the end I think poker.

    I can't get that to fit properly. The only thing that comes to mind is that red = debt, although that's not really a red light.

    I thought poker, too.
    Call is easy to make fit - matching an oppoents bet in poker is called calling. As for the red light, no ideas.

    I was thinking golf given the green reference but then the last three lines don't make sense.
