The Greedy Machine

With progressive lottery
Of millions of dollars,
Winning a jackpot, he thinks
Would change his entire collar.

In casino every weekend with
Coin pockets, greasy and grime
Pushes my greedy button
And commits another crime.

My flashing lights, bright colors,
Whistles, sirens, and calls
Surrounded by excitement
I am infectious to all.

He thinks it is safe to play
Cares not for confrontations
Learning without a manual
Just dumps in all his collections

My slot clubs offer him great rewards
Getting a free room or meal,
Even a special discount
Wow! For him it is a steal!

My penny slots fit every budget.
Low roll or a high scroll,
He plays with me for hours and hours
Without watching his bankroll


Cares not of hard earned money
That could rock his baby’s cradle
Wipe off from brow a wrinkle
Or buy her a golden ladle.

Foolishly
He drops
Yet another coin
Into my slot
Agreed!
I promised him moon
But I will
Clean him
and
Swallow it all.
