If I Sin I Win

Poetry By: Indie Skreet

I believe in setting a good example to the young......

Autobiographical? Well, it might be ...... but in this instance Indie is discreet.

It's not that I am a cheat

For any specific goal,

Just a tool for me to beat

And to keep me on a roll.

Whether cards, love or board game,

I will cheat as play's begin;

It is true I have no shame,

Because if I sin I win.

Many claim I am bad sport

And this I cannot deny,

But need to be the sly sort

If I'm gonna win my guy.

Scrabble is easy peasy

With the letters that I rob,

A 'J' an 'O' and a 'B'

And again I've done the job.

Yes, Poker can be quite hard,'

I can't be an open book,

But up my sleeve is a card

Which says, 'I'm a clever crook'.

I admit I am a cheat,

Both liar and a sinner,

Why would I want to compete,

If couldn't be a winner?

It doesn't make me first choice

For lunch or dinner invite,

Refuse to lose my large voice

For sake of mere appetite.

But God is all forgiving,

So will overlook each crime

And know when I cease living

I'll have one hell of a time.
