Deal your cards and make you play, tell the world I cannot stay,
Shuffle the decks and muster your bluff, all eyes on me, royal to flush,
I dared the world this card game to steak, a life so simple and world so full,
So ready your eyes and take your sits, the game begins my place to make.
Spread the cards and play the games, wiggle your tails and straighten your hair,
Jacks too high and queen so deep, take the bait and lose your way,
The house banks chips and courage cease, world is winning, my fate be leaving,
Games roll out and my chips rain in, this game is foul and my bluff is called.
Smoke filled air and angels bare, skin so hot I cannot dare,
Spinning cards and losing strict, must believe my win will come,
Dancing hands and sweating palms, all so ready, this hand to declare,
Falling chips and high-stake pot, now my chance this world to show.
World so hot, it cannot lose, victory in time and my last chips to demand,
Dealer deals and house shouts "Fold", world takes stock, this game he wins,
All games square the score so far, now the time to risk it all,
Freshen the decks and gather the pot, the world and me last game to begin.
Toss the card and watch them roll, shield the edges no secrets to behold,
Place your bets, all in I am bold, world smiles on and matches my load,
Two cards back and fresh eyes I request, world holds on, no changes to his flocks,
Beaten heart and shorter breathe, must believe a Ace will unfold.
Now un-turned one card before me lay, world calls in my play, all cards to reveal,
My four of a kind, so plain to be seen, I watch in a hurry, as the world laid his flurry,
A four, a six, a nine and a jack, all hearts in a trophy, and to seal off my coffin,
The world lays the red ace of hearts on its back, my heart sinks in despair.
And so now my humble audience, my life hangs in emotion, my cards now to be had,
I straighten my back, and lay open my Trojans, the world looks in dismay,
A ten, the humble jack, the king and her queen, all colors of black, the spade to be exact,
The world lingers in disgust and a crack breaks down its back, one card left to show, all eyes glues to know,
I muster the courage a prayer in disguise, I slip up the card, the black Ace of spade shows its face.
The audience scream with excitement, the world leaves in embarrassment,
My heart beats uncontrolled, tears moisten my eyes, fear took its flight, this game now a delight,
Let all now know, this games took its toil, the world not so easy and life not so simple,
The dealer looks up and told, a Royal Flush now I hold…..
