Sunday Short: Game Over
By Sarah Cate Anstey, May 28 2017 07:27AM
I always admired how you played for the enjoyment;
Your ability to lose gracefully, almost with glee.
Just happy to have someone to play with,
Even if they were better than you.
In the last game we played,
I laid my cards out.
You folded without hesitation.
I checked the hand you had discarded so willingly.
You’d gotten lucky, could have won it all.
I used to think you lacked strategy,
But you had a game plan all along.
I should have guessed,
Someone who could lose so willingly,
Would think nothing of losing me.
