Inspired By Wes Vogler - Poem by Tom Billsborough

Johnny should have gone to bed.
But he shot some craps instead.
His first roll was a seven. He lead!
That's natural for me" he said.
Then came a run of twos. He bled!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was inspired by an excellent five liner by Wes Vogler. Not as good as his though.
