Poem – No Ace in the Hole

Inspired by: Michael and Sunday Writing Prompt – 13th September – Cards

“You must play the

Hand

Dealt you.”

My foot!

Is it in

The stars,

The cards?

You say,

“That’s how the

Chips fall.”

Meanwhile,

Everyone has an

Ace

Up his sleeve.

Someone else always holds the

Deck.

I’m just asking for my

Cut.

Here’s a tell:

Bluff your way through.

There’s always another

Shuffle

When you’ve got

Chips

On the table.
