The Lyrics

I see my wallet and moan
I think I need another loan
I'm feeling flushed and can't think straight
Due to my financial state
Seems my head left the game
Wish that my whole self did the same
Tried to play cards but the cards played me
So I'm on the verge of bankruptcy

When the short stack said he's all in
Why'd I choose to call with
Just a four and a three?
Then the big stack bets big post flop
I look at what I don't got
Moron, a moron, that's me
Mistakes were very costly
Really should've tossed the
Nine high and inside straight draw
Winning's also tough since
I can't detect bluffin'
Seems like it is an innate flaw
I can't quit since this addiction is cruel
I'm a poker fool

Like MC Hammer past his prime
Couldn't keep what had been mine
I was bad so was my luck
Oh so much I had to muck
And when my hand seemed very strong
What seemed so right went very wrong
Bet a lot with a set of jacks
River queen meant I got nothing back

And that one hand was a stunner
Got his flush runner runner
Such long, long freakin' odds
Set of aces, so I slow played
Was sure I would be okay
There is no, there is no God
A seven leaf green clover's
As common as a poker
Game I play in and profit
So after several costly re-buys
It really hurt to see my
Stack become short like a hobbit
I cashed out so that I could purchase gruel
I'm a poker fool

Well I never learn my lesson
I always end up guessin'
What other people have
I suppose I wasn't all there
Big pot I folded small pair
King high won and they all laughed

Well I've never been to Vegas
Maybe that would make this
Cold streak be in the past
Gamblers there to get their bet on
Should help me make my debt gone
Really like really like fast
My first concern is airfare
I really do not care where
The money for it comes from
And the most simple way to get it
Is borrowing on credit
Visa won't call me a dumb bum
But my mother will call me a dumb bum
Cause I'm a poker fool
I am a poker fool
I'm a poker fool
Maybe I should have tried more in school
I'm a poker fool

Sounds like you lost the full house. Straight and to the flushing point. Maybe the pot's too big or the smoke screen too small. :-) 5 of a kind!

The poker gods are capricious. Don't know the artist or the song, but this is well written and a topic I can certainly relate to.

All around it's solid. You hit with jokes and your pacing was pretty good. Nice work.
