Like is like a game of poker

Cards deciding your next step

Dealer cunning and experienced

Looking to enjoy schadenfreude

A poet can tell a story

To inspire a minority to become majority

Can this create the mental fortitude to play

The poker face

The sense of purpose and courage to compete

To gamble, to risk and reap the rewards in life.

Like a game of poker.
