Gamble Gambit

Anti up and deal the cards.
Face down. Face up. Call your game. 
Call my bluff. 
         Perhaps I’m lying. 
Shrink and fold 
         If you’re so lame 
You can’t endure the hot/cold sweats, 
Take a stand without regrets,
Lose the battle?
Lose the farm? 
Face the challenge? 
Place your bets.

You might be a first-move-maker 
If you have it in your gut to
Gnaw and gnash and bare your fangs, 
Claw and climb the rotting rut.

Taking chances. 
         Lashing out. 
                Slashing deep 
                        The unkind cut.
