Shyron has been writing poems from childhood for her family and friends.
Playing with the Queen of Hearts
The Poker friends of Jacqueline, known to us as Jake are extending our sympathy to her family and all her other friends with this poem.
The Queen of Hearts
Jacqualine “Jake” sat at the poker table to start
This would be her last and greatest game
To try to win her soul the devil would sit in
Jake was dealt a pair of Queens
The devil the Ace and King of clubs
Then came the flop three clubs, a two, a five and a ten
and everyone stayed in
The devil thought he’d win this game with his ace high flush
How could he lose? So, he raised the bet again.
Jake’s friends began to fold
When the Queen of diamonds came up at the turn
She knew she had a good chance and she went all in
When on the river the Queen of hearts came floating in
Jake knew she had nothing to lose
Even if she lost this game
She’d always led an exemplary life shaped by the Golden Rule
And her soul the devil could not win
The Moral of this Poem
If like Jake you play for the camaraderie
You will always win.
