More than a rainy day
game in waterlogged


Monopoly taught us that some
properties were more

valuable than others;

that hotels cost more
than houses,

but created income;

that landlords were
cruel masters,

always to be paid;

that money could
be hoarded,

but easily spent;

that bankruptcy
was shameful,

and to be avoided;

that banking
meant extra


that addition and subtraction
could be managed

in the head;

and most important of all,
that success in life might

depend on the roll of dice.
