Poetic Stick Calls

Just make your selection Shoot in that direction Roll the seven or eleven, then you’ve made the right connection. Once more, the point is four. Just like before. Hard ways of ten, eight, six, and four. If you bet them before, you can bet them some more. It only takes a buck to try your luck. If you get this four you’re going to shoot some more. The shooter is keen to see a square root of sixteen. If you want to win, you’ve got to get a finn. You don’t have to go to Helsinki to get one. To stay alive, you need a roll of five. There are no tricks to getting a six. Won’t it be great to see another eight? You get to shoot some more with a square root of sixty-four. Won’t it be fine to see another nine? Won’t it be fun To see a square root of eighty-one? If you get this ten, you’re going to shoot again. Just take two, send them on through. Roll the seven or eleven; that’s all you have to do!
