Poker Feet

El ocho patas
has a poker face

it won't show
what he's got in his hands

or his eight feet
where he's hiding aces

he wears dark socks
so you can't see

his many toes
he knows

how the world will end
for the Americans

he knows why
the Mayans disappeared

he knows how Mars
lost its atmosphere and its rear

but you can't tell it
by his poker face
