Why Do I?
Why do I insist on chasing with my weak hand?
Will this be my hand, at last, or have you just
totally confused me that all reason leaves me blind?
Why do I even consider a call, or a raise?
To fold would be a grind!
Why do I feel your innocent bets are too tempting to ignore?
Would a check have made you wish you asked for more?
Why do I forget all the bad beats from before?
Awaiting the score would be a big bore.
Why do I insist on playing this hand?
If you've not read me by now, well,
maybe later you'll understand.
Despite your level and all you've been,
Just raise me... and see if I stay in.
