        When learning to play games as kids,
        The object was quite clear.
        Do the best that you can do
        And attend to what you hear.
        The object is, of course, to win
        While higher values drifted by-
        But we never were warned
        Nor did we suspect
        That working to be the best was a lie.

        In a casino one night in the past
        Watching '21' from the far side,
        I saw a man escorted out of the room
        After winning a greenback landslide.
        I found out later that he'd been 'counting,'
        An illegal sin per the owner's whim-
        He'd simply learned how to win the game
        And for that they were punishing him.

        So playing to win isn't always OK,
        It depends on whose making the rules.
        And though we were taught that smart figuring counts
        Casinos are clearly not schools.
        Not in the usual sense, at least,
        Where knowledge is used to achieve-
        At least when it comes to playing Blackjack
        If you can win, you are invited to leave.

        It doesn't seem fair and it doesn't seem right
        That winning is a breach of the rules,
        The Casino owners and their silver-spoon progeny
        Must attend very different schools.
        More like the ones politicians populate,
        Where laws and rules protect themselves
        From losing their power, wealth or esteem
        Should we happen to earn a few bucks by our work
        That threatens their fat with some lean.

        A gambler I have never been, but I do know how to count,
        And should I stumble up to that velvety green-
        I'd use it to balance those accounts.
        Casino owners and politicians.
