Burnt away

A promising career,

Pocket full of cash

No one could have stopped this man

But his gambling career

She had the money,

The car and the perks

She worked hard for her dollar

But she drank it in quarts

He was a millionaire,

Winning the lotto one night

But he's snorted it all

Up his nose it takes flight

All lives' were promising,

But slowly burnt away,

Now there's nothing but

A crispy crypt to remain

For future generations

To all come and see

They all appear on Oprahs' talk show

Saying "don't ever be like me"

But as they get their money,

They calculate the cost,

Of how much it would take,

To drink or snort what was caught

The devil deals fire,

And so do we

You keep on playing

Your gonna get burnt
