IN THE CARDS

Standard

I’ll tell you where the dog died,
said the woman, meaning
nothing could be put over on her.

Here we call it like it is.
No use wasting breath
trying to convince a body otherwise.

A spade is a spade.  A heart
cannot be bought with diamonds
or a club.  Right here

is where the dog died.  We
buried it in the back yard.
Whatever you have to say:  shut up.
