|Bingo! was a series of acrostic poems that I
wrote to use on bookmarks for distribution at
the local VFW Hall for Bingo night.
by Xander Riley
Buy a few cards and have a seat.
It's time to socialize and meet
New friends and old.
Go forth, be bold;
Open up, find a new pal to greet.
Bring your neighbors and settle in;
Indulge with beer or wine or gin.
Need one for a line
Get set, it's a sign
Of good luck - you're going to win.
Bingo attracts a special breed,
Indulge your vices, feed your greed
One number is all that you need.
Balls with numbers spin and tumble;
Irate players moan and grumble.
No luck it seems,
Give up your dreams.
Once you lose, your hopes will crumble.
