a poem I wrote in five minutes
We met, and played in a chance meeting
The next we met my wallet took a beating
Your smug smile and money pile made me a loser sore
If I lose this hand, it may cost my wedding band, and I shown the door
With trembling hand I pick them and see what I get.
Your smug smile will be gone in a way you won't soon forget
I play meek and put all my money in
You place all of yours in as well now let the fun begin
Your house is full and remind me of your skill
But I hold each shiny ace, and your hand can't pay the bill
You in frustration point to the door
I leave with head held high to gamble nevermore
