A Bad Hand

A heart hanging from one sleeve
and from the other, sleight of hand,
there comes what some may conceive
a double-dealing wedding band
bet by the sly Queen of Hearts
on a deck stacked with a Joker,
thus rife with many false-starts
in games of Love so like Poker
where a Full House might well win
lest beaten by Five of a Kind,
and the only gambling sin
is losing the game in your mind.
