Lightning In Vegas

Most tourist travel to Vegas
to strike it rich, they stash their cash

and make their choices; tables,
slots, sports betting or bingo.

The city never sleeps
and provides amble opportunity
to double or triple the bets.

While most people lose
they never lose hope that one day
they will hit it big

so they gamble 
the night away.

Outside there is a commotion
power is lost in the city
torrential rain causes 
but the casinos stay lit.

The chances
of getting hit by lightening

are less than the chances
of hitting the jackpot  

but fear of the lightening
will keep them inside
trying to beat the odds
on their favorite machine.
