Stay Away and Don't Play

After all these years, you still have not learned. If you play too long, you are going to get burned. It is embarrassing, and certainly not nice, when you blow your whole bankroll while shooting dice. If you go to blackjack, baccarat, or roulette, the experiences you encounter may be ones you’ll regret. From gullible individuals, the house takes it all. The casino usually rakes in a windfall. You think you may have better luck playing a machine? Those larcenous contraptions can be even more mean. If you cannot afford to lose, then don’t play. From all those clip joints, you should just stay away.

    Really good advice you hand out. I like to play those one arm bandits and they do like to take your money. Did try black jack once but don't know much about card playing so do not play the card games. Nice poem. love phyl
