Dealing with the Cards You're Dealt

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: August 25, 2018

Life is more than just a game…

Sorry! 
Life is more than a Trivial Pursuit.
It's more than a roll of the Dice.
Any Dominoes
that Life is more than a game.
But it's a Risk
that can find you in the Pit.
No one has a Clue
where Chutes and Ladders will land you.
And no one has a Monopoly
on Aggravation.
Life can leave you feeling Rummy.
Just ask any Old Maid.
But don't Flinch!
Play the Cards you've been dealt
without worrying about what Trump might be.
