Counting Cards

On this day, the souls’ day
Death smiled down upon us
‘Cause he knew the time had come
He revealed the next card
Thinking that he’d won
But even his face did pale
When he saw what he had done
The number there surprised him
This had to be all wrong
He’d been counting all night
But his streak was finally gone
His debts were nearly settled
With everyone he owed
Until that card was upturned
His fate was all it showed
Never trust a guarantee
There’s always something you can’t see
And never doubt the house
They’ll surely throw you out
So he laid his cards down slowly
Knowing what came next
Then they gathered up the pot
And he had nothing left
