They Call Vegas
Sin City, like calling it what it is
somehow legitimizes the name.
Las Vegas is Sin City. Whole lot
of sinning going on, from fancy
high-rise casino rooms to sleazy
well-off-the-strip motel dives.
People come here specifically
to sin. But I wonder whether
it's really true that "what happens
in Vegas stays in Vegas."
People stain themselves here.
I bet, no matter how hard they
scrub themselves after sinning,
when they go home, a certain
amount of stain remains visible.
Then, I guess, it's up to the spouse
or significant other to recognize
the meaning of that dark splotch
ghosting beneath the bleach.
Most of 'em probably don't want
to look. Don't want to know.
