1943 Mercury Silver Dollar

~ Life Poker ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~


(Ist hand dealt…)

Life Poker is a game.

A Game of Trumps for Bankers Financiers Insurers.

Played by self-interest that prospers.

Paid for by the people who don’t.


The people, we gamble.

But never with lives.

So why would you?

Why steal our money paying for addiction?

Fixation gambling, paid for in blood?

And dollars?

The people’s, ours, not yours.


(2nd hand dealt…)

Do Jokers count?

And Kings trump Trump?

And Aces fly higher than Kings?

What of Eagles? Golden Eagles?

American Eagles? Bald Eagles

Do they Trump?

Or get free Insurance?

Free Healthcare?

Free everything?

As a perk, as novelties?




Is that fair?

The rules don’t seem very clear to me at all.


(3rd hand dealt…)

A last chance.

One card draw?

Just one question.

Our God, ‘in whom is our trust’, do they trump Trump?
