Playing Cards With The Wife.

by fanniesson

Probably told her a few thousand times over the years,
the order of what beats what in poker,

that a straight flush beats everything,
four of a kind beats a full house, which beats a flush,
that beats a straight, which beats three of a kind,
that beats two pair, that beats a pair.

Yeah probably told her that along with the simple rules
involved in playing such card games as rummy, gin-rummy,
500 rummy, and pinochle, but it always comes back to us playing

‘steal the old man’s bundle’,
and her bending my ear about her girlfriends,
those nights she wants to play cards with me
cause there’s nothing worth watching on t/v.
