One Eyed Jack

three card monte
plays out when
you go all in

that’s when
what you
turn up is
not enough
or even
relevant
to the game

it is bad
verse when
you chant
cliches
drawing them in
with misdirection
it is with a
sideways glance
that I tell you
in the land
of the blind,
the one-eyed Jack
is king

    Yes, I like it very much……..the underlying philosophy and how cleverly it is couched.

    Oh, I understand… stand on a street corner in a major city and watch a 3-card monty dealer one time… you’ll understand.

  5. Scot says:

    thanks Bob
    at the very least–met some other characters not dealing cards–just as shifty
