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 Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
