Poker Face


Poker Face

Holding most of the cards to determine one’s fate
Water-boarding, interrogation, and brutality is what awaits at the gate
Badgers and pigs running rampant throughout the street
While genocidal acts abound and remaining discreet
The republic is still standing yet remains on life support
Hunters hunting the hunted for the sake of sport
Poisoning the well, to the dusting of crops
Phantom adversaries to the inception of photo-shop photo ops
Misinformation is shown all over the place
Playing the cards in plain sight in the midst of a well-dressed poker face
