Black-Jack - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Give me another hit.
I'm going to stay with it a little bit.
I'm in the midst of this to win,
So...
Hit me.
Hit me.

Black-jack,
Give me that!

Give me another hit.
An ace would boost me up a bit.
Keep the others that you give me real low,
So...
Hit me.
Hit me.

Black-jack,
Give me that.
I want to get a twenty one then be done...
I don't want to be the losing one.

Black-jack,
Give me that.
Hit me.
Hit me.
An ace would boost me up a bit.
And after I win I'm going to quit.

So black-jack give me that!
Hit me.
Hit me.
An ace would boost me up a bit.
And after I win I'm going to quit.
