Napowrimo 28, 2nd instalment: The Bridge Club

Where people connect
interact
compete
recollect they have a brain
concentrate
demonstrate
their skill with numbers
exercise the social art
before the time comes to depart
satisfied
bids justified
or on the way to suicide
when partner asks you why
you bid that slam
whereby
you lost the rubber
damn
two trumps left uncounted
absentminded
error fatal –
counting trumps is vital
partner gloats with cruel recital
of your mistakes in spades
to Hades
with bridge

  2. I’ve been meaning to stop by for awhile and have finally made it. Going to explore for a bit. I don’t play card games as I don’t have the patience or understanding of them. I guess quilting fills that same criteria for me.

    I don’t play Bridge (or even know the rules) but this made me laugh. I assume you play as it sounds like you speak from experience.
