    A Spade is a Spade

    and it is truly a shame ...
    the simple fact that
    I couldn't exchange
    these hearts before
    this bad hand was
    ever dealt

    -- Such an unfair game 2 me.

    I had to decide -- do I
    Pass or Stay ? ~
    or maybe take a hit --
    that would never
    seem to fit quite right
    into this numerical
    pur(suit) of life's
    happ I ness

    ... he was holding on to too
    many cards ...

    I was destined to lose from
    the "un"luck of the
    draw ~

    There were 2 Queens
    ~~ searching ~~
    for the heart of the same
    KING
    only to be lost in the
    shuffle of his mischievousness

    He was cheating --
    over-bidding and under-lying
    a "gambling" behavior that is
    unbecoming -- uncalculated
    taking chances
    until there was nothing
    left to take ...

    Still - - he tried to hide half of
    the deck behind a false identity

    D E C E I V I N G even himself.

    You see ~
    ... to me ...

    A Spade is a Spade

    A dealer who can not stand
    the thought of winning or losing

    When there is no other game
    left to be played ~there you
    will find an inverted heart
    turned into a black spade

    I could feel that the ODDS
    were stacked against me
    ... I never could make "us" a match ...

    So while he was collecting
    the extra C(heart)ARDS in the
    palm of his hands
    strategically planning his next
    creative move...

    I tossed in all of mine ~

    I guess no one ever told him
    that deuces aren't really wild ~
    -- or that --
    he wouldn't find any
    jok(her)s in this deck ~~

    There was no better time than
    the present --
    -- that's when I decided
    it was time
    for this Queen

    ~~ to fold ~~

    My Sistuh!!...

    you do get down for yours!! :)
    & it's always so clear & concise.

    i'm glad to hear that you only
    folded on the "playa"... it would
    be such a waste to the game
    if you decided not to "play" again! :)
