Alan Bruce Thompson
We know that drinking’s bad and smoking too,
But from alcohol and tobacco we take in enormous revenue.
That gambling is catching and quite addictive to you,
Is no reason to close the casinos on cue?
The lottery induces people to throw away hard-earned cash,
Is hard to believe when a few win with a splash!
What most don’t know, and don’t tell them if you do,
Is that investment banking, is legalized gambling too!
