Hand held close to chest,
the dealing done
the cards in play
the easy bluff.

Had there been aces,
a different game.

A winning hand to be had
and the stakes higher.
The easy bluff.

And then it hits,
the odds finally met
and the dreaded 2-7 hand.

It's a good fight
for the experienced
but most simply
cash in their chips.
