More than just a rainy day
child’s indoor game,


taught us that some
properties were more
valuable than others;

that hotels cost more
than houses;

that landlords were
cruel masters;

that money could
be hoarded;

that bankruptcy
was shameful;

that math
could be managed
in the head;

that success in life 

might depend 
on the roll of dice.
