"Gleaming steel and neon lights.

They flash. I dance.

Garments falling to the floor as I

Spin,

Lose myself in sin

Dollar after dollar

Night after night

A carousel ride of

Eight-inch heels

And

Tip out sheets,

Just

Trying

To get by

In this world of strippers and silicone dreams.

'I'm living the life of Riley, baby.'"
