Excerpt from The Bucket Shop

The Bucket Shop.

By William Meade.

For wildcat, monkey chances in cotton futures, wheat, corn, pork lard, stocks and hay,
The Bucket Shop is a place, they say,
Where you can make a fortune in a day,
But like many other fairy tales, they say,
This easy fortune making works the other way;
For the Bucket Shop is a place where you can drop
One hundred thousand dollars at one pop;
The "Bucket" can not claim Roman, Greek or ancient age,
Like faro, cards, baccarrat and other ancient sporting plays,
That were made with modest stakes for pleasure and devartion,
To suit during the wild oats period of the boys of fortune:
The Bucket Shop game is of modern invention,
And was started with no good public intention;
The Bucket Shop in conceptive organization,
Is one of the worst swindles in God's creation;
It is organized to cheat, deceive, demoralize and plunder,
And tear a man and his purse asunder;
The Bucket Shop was made large cash stakes to take,
And business men, cashiers and banks to break;
And to make good men go down to their graves brokenhearted,
Without purse or friend, or bank to lend,
As was their wont before the Bucket advent.

The prosperity of a Bucket Shop
Is based upon its customers' bad luck;
The Bucket Shop, for origination,
Has nothing but its customers' bad luck for its foundation;
As long as its patrons all keep betting wrong,
The Bucket man keeps very strong,
