More than a game, it was a heart from
a royal flush. I saw her every flaw which
told me her true hand. A slight twitch
in her eye told the bluff, as she tugs
her earlobe and raises the stakes. I call
her on the hand that would send her to
bankruptcy. She reveals a straight flush. I glance
over my fool's hand and fold. It was only
one heart away from a royal flush....At least
thats what I tell my wife.
