Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a desert place,

started by some crooks.

The lessons you can learn while there,

can’t be found in books.

I’ve traveled there┬ásporadically,

to see the shows and such.

Been tempted by the scenery,

looked but did not touch.

I gambled with my hopes alive,

the rush is such a drug,

The only thing I’ve ever won,

is this Crummy Mug.

I use it for my daily brew,

every chance I get.

Reminding of what to try,

and what I want to bet.

The wealth you see in Vegas,

buildings one by one.

Would never be there standing tall,

if everyone had Won.
