An actor rests between assignments

"War is a racket"
- Major General Smedley Butler

I know what I'll do
with all the prizes
I'm gonna win
in the Worldwide Lottery
with my latest foolproof system
of numbers drawn
from the holy books

I'll buy paintings
in oils
by Sandy Warhole
and store them
in a vault
with bars of gold

The Napoleonic Wars
brought prizes
of gold
and also the bonus
of two World Wars

there's a role
in an East End theatre?
