‘Life Is A Card Game’ by Hailey Agnew

‘Life Is A Card Game’

by Hailey Agnewuntitled

“Life is a card game,
with aces and jokers.
the game is called life,
its sorta like poker.
the hand you’ve been dealt,
is what you’ve got.
you can’t choose what you get,
you can’t screw with the plot.
to get what you want,
you can break the rules,
but sometimes you have to play,
with what life’s given you.
an ace is what you have…”

You can read the complete poem here.

November marks 150 years since Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland’ was first published. Surrey Libraries is hosting a number of events to mark the occasion.

Throughout the month we’ll be posting various poems featured in and associated with the story – such as poems about cats (but only if they’re smiling), time or rabbits.

We’d love to hear yours.

NB: Any self written poems will be credited to you unless you specify otherwise. We cannot guarantee which poems will be included but will try to include as many as possible.
