Twenty Seven Red



An expensive high, I mustn't lie
it grabs and holds your attention
Temporary as it may be, at times
it can dwindle ones pension
.

During the roll, or as it is dealt
sensibility sometimes omitted
Laying down dough just on a hunch
really should not be permitted
.

A free country it is, where I can win
or end my days in a shamble
do as I wish, spend till I'm broke
after all it's only a gamble

A dangerous gamble though?

Casino owners sure wouldn't want to post your poem. Very good. :)

not being a gambler i have never felt the need to play more than i could loose,, and thus it has remained a fun past time whenever i do get a chance to go to a casino...
