Gluttony Of Big Winnings

Gluttony is the cost of doing business

And all those shiny stars,

Have faded out,

And are long past dead

The winds speak of all the big winnings,

All the luxuries,

All you could ever dream of

But the rains hold different plans,

And all will be shown,

When the time is ripe

I watch the mindless,

Looking lost and scared,

Scattered about ,

Walking aimlessly in circles,

And paying no attention,

To the vast world at large

There I can see,

All their tiny thoughts of disillusionment,

Those wicked glints of disappointment,

When they discover,

It’s not as they were promised

I’ve shared drinks with the best of them,

Listened to the sad tales,

And watch as the smiles,

Melted from their faces,

Like wax near a flame

Not what they had hoped for

Not the end,

Which they bought into

All that time is gone

It’s all gone,

And never coming back

Gluttony is the cost of doing business

And all those shiny stars,

Have faded out,

Hope the lies they tell themselves,

Have made it all worth it
