The Ultimate Card Game

Vintage Words


Seeking the time of day on a clock without seconds or on a calendar owning just ten days of dawns with no sun or light or anything is not helpful when picking up your cards. Betimes, nothing, absolutely nothing, can be clearly seen when slight of hand is the rule. Oft times, only nothing known or knowable is worse. To be forever clouded or dealt a shrouded handful of misunderstood tricks all sorta sucks. What follows the dropped deuce of enlightenment? All my Ante ups rising from way too lean a purse like jackal jaded royalty running amok again. The dealer is suspect. Once more I will be trumped by ultimate japes and jabbing mouthed jacks accompanied by injurious jokesters. That seems my lot, my bad hand dealt, aces always asleeve elsewhere. So it stays, a sudden feeling of omnipotence. What leaves is the will to carry around happiness in a stacked deck. Obviously, you have to play to lose because life can not help being the harlequin most days anyway. Another game?
