Poker Face

You’ve always held your cards

so tightly to your chest

never revealing a thing

and always speaking in jest.

The hand that you were dealt

does not reflect that tone

and even drawing new cards

still leaves you all alone.

All the while the others watch

waiting to figure out your tell

but your poker face holds no sign

of the hand you got from hell.
