Poem: Grifters In Sin City @sportsrage

Grifters In Sin City

“Look at all the money” said Jimmy.
“I know,” said Eleanor. “They're PLAYING with it.”
What a place to be! Thought the two young people
The hustle was greater than the bustle.

A magic place with cards
Already placed on the tables
It was not in the cameras
It was not in the photos
For sometimes what you can't see is right before your eyes.

The sparkly lights attracted the kids
Who had nothing when born Nothing to begin with
There was gold on the ceilings and fish in the walls
Mirror on mirror the hustle was on.
