I check and I counter, then raise in a boast
for the love of a most significant host. I'm all in,
and I always will be for you
I raise poker chips worth many a penny to few.
Some ask why I bet,
but I do not fret,
for you they are just a gamble a plenty.
For what is worth, and what does mean money?
So I spend and I try and I wonder what comes,
by betting all mine that is under the sun.
Well to be honest, it is to double
that which I have,
no trouble just self, if you give me yours i'll truly know wealth.
So I check, then I counter, and then I will raise
to gain the house's adornment and praise.
