Even though I’m a poker player…

A popular casino game: blackjack,
The object is to collect twenty-one.
Next time you’re out gambling, give it a crack,
Copious people consider it fun.

Many gamblers prefer to double down,
A strategy to duplicate their bet.
An ace on eleven begets a frown,
‘Cause losing money makes many upset.

Another common tactic is to split,
When a similar pair is thusly dealt.
I have to admit, I’m perturbed a bit,
When someone splits tens, I reach for my belt.

Provided the others play correctly,
You can watch your chip stack grow directly.

“I like to play blackjack. I’m not addicted to gambling. I’m addicted to sitting in a semi-circle.” ~ Mitch Hedberg
