I visited hell the other day ...........

It could be argued that I was devoid of inspiration but the yellow brick road recently led me to the sports bar at Crown Casino.
Hard drinkin and hard gamblin were the norm here. 2.30pm Friday I think ( no windows and clocks here) , bore witness to desperate men and dodgy behaviour. At least they served Johnny Black for the asking.
The Orwellian monster screens gave one an excuse to concentrate on your drinking and not have to converse. The purpose of having three screens simultaneously showing American basketball, one day cricket and Wangaratta trots always mystified me. How the hell can I gain inspiration here?
I partake of a tub chair knowing that to refill my glass allows some fat arse fool in my seat. So be it , I people watch.
An elderly Asian man snoring quietly beside me is approached by security. Two tall under 30’s that could have stepped out of Langley Virginia grabbed an arm each. It was reminiscent of crackin a wishbone, I wonder who will win?
“No sleepin pop, you gotta go”, one sneered. I crunched my scotch soaked ice, angry at his treatment.
“Bastards”, I hissed. They frogmarched him away.
This place is hell on wheels. The red carpet and garish decor screams 666 at me. I come to the conclusion its wall to wall pain here, all in the guise of winning cash and dyin one minute at a time.
I go.
