A Slick Silver Slope

An English teacher with a little spare time is a dangerous thing!If you want to find me after LULU closes, I'll be on http://writtenword.spruz.com/. Until then, my stuff will stay here.

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.
