Jokers Jacket

I put on my jesters' jacket

Dealing out my deck of deceit

I deal the bane of knights attacks

But I serve faceless Kings & Queens

I'll fold my capitol hand

Though I know I can't lose

My turn will go as planned

Stone 'poker-face'

With my pair of twos

I'll bet every bit

With my flimsy cards

I'd never admint

I'll leave the table scarred

I'm sure as day the one to blame

I'll stumble druken towards the bar

In hopes, to drown the shame

  Ha! I like this. I love poker. Although I usually win so I cannot say I totally relate to it...

  I like this write. Its got a cool poker metaphor going on. Never know when your bluff will get called.

However, I feel that the last two lines can be reworked to have a better flow in closing. As is it seems to fall short at the last line. You cant have that if you mean for the end to have impact. I struggle with it as well. Just play with the last lines to get a flow like you do early in the poem, thus maximizing the impact of the closing. Just my opinion.

"I'd never admint"

A misspelling/typo here I think. My spelling is terrible so I am not hating. Keep it up.
