The largest of a slinking kind, nothing holds it or can bind. ItТs the Magic Lottopus, the same that puts the SQUEEZE on us. Surely, somethingТs run amuck when souls are sold to Lady Luck. A five spot here, a twenty there, it soon adds up: a life stripped bare. Tentacles run up your pants, steal your dough and then fling grants to every scam that bends the ear like those daughters of old King Lear. He set them up and then found out they left him nothing but his gout!* Leaches that can trick and bait, they say УGet in, bubba, donТt be late! WeТll double on the second buck, itТs time to cash in on your luck!Ф And so you risk wheels and rent, and lose it all (plus what friends lent!). YouТre walking now, no car, no home, free to freeze, and free to roam. Cage some smokes with your sign, УHey, man, can you spare a dime?Ф When youТve got enough to pay, you try your luck again that day! Meanwhile, thieves enjoy a yacht, a custom craft your savings bought. They donТt care if you now starve; prime rib, sir, is what they carve. Cleverly, they run an ad to sucker in your Mom and Dad; it wonТt be long till theyТre broke too, and on the street to join you. Olympia solons know no shame, to rob the poor is just a game. They ignore GodТs УTHOU SHALT NOT STEALФ, and bring woe on the commonweal. Battening on financial need, the Lottopus kills us with pure greed. Her strangle-hold we cannot break while elected wolves are on the take. УEasy moneyФ, mountain-high, hardens hearts and blinds the eye. Such refuse to hear the cries of hungry children, or the sighs of aged poor on fixed incomes, who take a hit so hard it numbs. They fill the street with hopelessness, a crowd busted by Lottopus. Eight million are your odds to beat, like gravity you canТt defeat. Climb Mt. Rainier with one big jump before you ever see a trump! Day by day the ante climbs, the ads fly thick, with catchy rhymes. The Lottopus, she sucks and swells, feeding on our private hells. WhatТs that awful smell round here? Like milk gone bad or slugs in beer! Lottopus, I think, itТs you, bursting with a gruesome goo! Some call it УPublic MoneyФ now, to do us good, as they avow, but actually itТs ROTTENOUS, a spreading, civic cess. _______________________ The point? Citizens, stop and think before you throw money away. Why gorge Lottopus while you live on refried beans in sheet-rock Hoovervilles? Do God--unlike drugs, booze, the soaps, HeТs your Friend, HeТs True Help. And attend church or synagogue. The biggest hypocrites think they donТt need to go--right?
