Playing Cards with Friends: Three Things Challenge

Gin rummy with friends can get quite brutal,

Even when the pot is only filled with candy.

A more efficient way to keep the peace

Has been to keep a bottle of gin real handy.

That tends to mellow them out eventually,

Bringing their tense competition to a rest.

Although candy may seem safer than money,

Don’t forget the Beefeater Pink, I would suggest.

Poem written for the Three Things Challenge from The Haunted Wordsmith, February 2, 2019: gin, efficient, and candy.
