A Slick Silver Slope

A lost man, addicted to hope,
Is slipping down a slick silver slope.
As the sunset sizzles into the Vegas Strip,
Another bum removed for giving the manager lip
Midnight leaves another million dollar dream deferred,
As the rent, credit card bills, and three more meals are burned.
