Full House

FULL HOUSE
(Life is gamble; strife is ample.
Like bards  we grumble; like cards we crumble.)

deck of cards we are.

we toil with spades
to earn our diamonds.
we bluff with clubs.
we love with our hearts.

we take chances.

we are kings, queens,
jacks and jokers –
players all.

ever keeping our aces
close to our chests,
we feel secure.

still, susceptible we are:
ruffled when shuffled!

(in poker,
money
is between winning and losing.

in life,
anything
is between taking and giving.)

– between poker and life is game.
