Magpie 127




Stacked Deck

'twas always the same
 Eight of Spades, Eight of Clubs
When would her luck change

Diamonds and sweet hearts
Never seemed to fall her way
The deck must be stacked

Shuffle one more time
One half of a pair is her aim
Tonight she has the house edge

  1. how did you ever find that picture...is that another one that you played with? and are those your legs? smiles....

    the deck it seems is stacked at times...we often make our own luck more than waiting on it to change...half a pair is her aim...smiles...nice...
