At The Pawn Shop

Casino down the street, rings lined a mile long 
Is this a gambling habit or marriages gone wrong? 
How'd they get so many guitars strings still in place 
Wood polish shines brightly inside the velvet case 

And what about those guns and tools ? 
Belong to a broken man perhaps gambling fools?
But look at the other side filled packed with toys 
The things a child would miss or no longer boys?

Gruff faces all around rather spooky yet demure 
"Our junk will soon be yours" take the Pawn shop tour!

    I agree with Andrea! You've got an excellent job with this. I could never write one for this...or maybe...well, no time! Judy, thanks ever so much for your post on You've Written a Novel. I answered you on that. Please check if interested. :) Thanks for the encouraging word. I honestly did it because I didn't want to disappoint you! Please go back and check! LOVELY WRITE HERE! hugs!

    Judy, I love how you did this contest idea. I just can't think of anything yet and I admire you how you did yours. Thanks for my win in your contest. I'm glad I finally made the effort to do my introduction.
