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 sporadically,

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.
