Losing spirit

A dark hat stood at the counter,
“Put your bets on here!” a woman shouts
As she sits behind the plastic screen,
A reflective shield from the punters.

Cash is eaten by the fruit machines,
Or from a spot of poker or blackjack,
A card fails to draw the winning result,
And the dark hat falls to the floor.
