Richie McNamara // CARDS

Chances are you’re just another number,

ignored, forgotten, unappreciated.

Striving to be a king,

Favored, envied, rich

Or maybe you are royalty,

Maybe you’re one of the lucky few.

But still, you aren’t an ace,

And even aces aren’t fulfilled.

Defined by our differences,

The differences that are never good enough,

But those don’t matter

to anyone

When you’re the king.

Maybe you drew a lucky hand,

Maybe you’re one of the few

Who are set to succeed.

But maybe things aren’t the same in the next game.

Or maybe you drew a hand that makes you want to fold,

Filled with filthy numbers

And the only way to win is to lie and bluff.

And you hurt others on your way to the top,

But that doesn’t matter

to anyone

When you’re the king.
