Evolution of the Casino

Postby Don Schaeffer » Fri Mar 21, 2014 11:18 am

We sit and take our chances,
watching the invisible Master
do the mysterious work.
We supplicate noisily with our dollars
pasted on the prayer wheel.
We know how
once this was a sin,
making material prayers
to alter the world against
the master's own instruction.
We once did it in a hall of danger,
unprotected; but we are now free.
The commandments are swept away.
What was once sin
is now sport.
Don
