A place where blood from past homicides still stained the walls, where teenagers turned tricks and the floor was littered with syringes
and maggot infested garbage. A place where cops were called several times every single day.

...health officials say the reason people turn to crack over powdered cocaine is largely down to cost. "It's a cheaper high," says Robin Clark-Smith, an administrator at a needle exchange program at the Bridgeport Health Department in Connecticut, US. A slab "rock" of crack in Bridgeport sells for just $5, while a bag of powdered cocaine goes for $20.

Much like a casino, the house must have money. the poor and troubled with hopes of improving their lot in life spend their last $10.
in the hope for that big score...release from their impoverished pain while they enjoy the high of the role of the dice. Then they cry
as they hunger throughout the night. Crack houses, like casinos they need cocaine, follow the money, banked roles by those who
live in century homes, world wide travelers who live above the fray, sucking the juices from the week and from those who feel that
need to bury their pain. Trapped in a world of senseless meaningless looking for a way out of their pain, screaming for a five minute
high. Twisted by high rollers who feed upon these weakness but the high rollers are rarely scratched for feeding the imported white
powder. They float too high above with golden rings, embedded in legal threads of power where even human angels do not dare tread.
Though we see the base line of shattered lives....nothing will change if all we do is clean up the shattered glass....
The crystal pieces stained by golden rings.


What do you think..?
