Treasure Island

Ray Quesada

(08-08-1986)

50-card Steve


There goes 3-card Mike
with all he can fight
when he left yesterday
he shoulda went right

And theres 5-card Billy
with 7-card Jack
they both get silly
smokin' that crack

And Alabama Chuck
has been down on his luck
he shoulda played Razz
instead of 7-card Stud

But they all have something in common
when they all pack up and leave-
They never had a clue
while playin' with 50-card Steve,
that he always had you
with that Ace up his sleeve.

    I agree with the comments from Red O' mara, sounds like a film advert. Good write, enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    Reads as though it should have been that sort of movie that can only come out of America. You could build a chapter around each of these verses. Great pictures. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
