Royal Flush

Five in a flush. A ten of hearts starved of bling; it makes my heart rush.

My mind’s turned to mush. To this hand, Jack of hearts I bring. Five in a flush

I will my cheeks not to blush, “A beautiful red queen!” I want to sing. It makes my heart rush.

Ignore the hush. His heart steals mine, oh mighty king. Five in a flush.

Deep breaths; try not to gush; hold back a smile; hands, don’t wring. It makes my heart rush.

With an ace, I will crush. I won! Ka ching! Five hearts in my flush. Oh, how it makes my heart rush.
