One hand Poker Bam!
Gathering in the car ready to go.
Racing down the road to not be late.
We arrive to be mid of the line.
The sign up has begun.
Beer and food ordered.
We sit with anticipation for the best.
Finally called to the table.
The cards fly.
Dare I pick them up.
No this time I go blind.
What will happen, did I pair?
Lifting them up one red and one black.
Suited for the draw.
Four to a straight, three to a flush.
My heart pound as player six raises.
Do I call?
Do I fold.
Thump, Thump, I can hear nothing else.
"Mister please call or fol."
So I did...call that is.
Here comes the "turn".
Four to a straight, and four to a flush.
Thump, thump, I'm almost there...
"All in," from player three, what to do.
Almost there, Thump, thump.
My heart nearly beats out my chest.
"I CALL!"  I'm a fool...
Four to a straight, four to a flush, and not even a pair.
Game over.

Sorry for the bad hand. But life dealt you a better one with your baby. Wishing you the best with her.
