In Praise of Poker

I was always told to know when to draw and when to fold. That playing Poker was more than a game of chance if you’re bold

A straight flush will always buy baby new shoes. If you miss drawing an inside straight you’ll get the blues. Four of a kind is usually good news

You have to have the right stuff to successfully bluff or it’s going to be tough to win

Cheaters and card sharks are always looking for easy marks playing for larks.

Some games get serious quickly and are not a pretty thing to see. If you’re a bystander it’s always smart to flee

Players play until all hours of the day. As long as there are two players they’ll stay, until one can no longer pay
