Auntie Penny’s

penny ante

poker draws a crowd…

some related,

celebrated

folk with loads of clout.

Rich and thin,

they come to win

and never fold or check…

sporting suits,

and diamonds, too,

they play on outside deck.

Some are royal,

and numbers loyal

a 10-2 those that are…

from bearded mugs,

to one-eye thugs

to shovel wielding tsars.

Yes, Penny’s club

exclusive, but

packs the stands with fans

–the true of heart

–the joking card

they give the regal hand.
