Trick

At those low light times
when we unwittingly gamble
against the steady hands of
painstaking gain-makers,
one-eyed Jack can seem to deal
more savvy and shrewd than us.

But, in the long game,
feigning deep vein confidence,
whilst clutching sorry cards
to our most heavy chest,
may serve well enough,
and even bluff the blinkered odds
of the serious strategist.
