Poker with the Lads

See the fight last week? Oh yeah
Brutal, kid's got a chance - I like
The Mexican fella that should be
Some scrap who's ordering the
Pizza? That new girl in work? Fucking hell Barry'll be on it like gravy o’er a tattie! A flush beats a straight you
Daft twat - hand us a beer Stan!
Good man.

I don't know why
We are here or what we
Are supposed to be doing
But we are here and doing it
For some shared reason though
We don't know one another or
Really wish to and there's no
Money on the table.

Why do they play 
Poker for matches
In prison
On TV?
