Ode to Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg is a game we all adore,
Played with five or even four.
The magical, smooth ivory tiles, bring lots
Of laughs and so many smiles.
Flowers, bams, dots, and cracks,
Dragons and winds placed on the racks.
Charleston to the left, across, and right,
Keep the same tiles that are in sight.
Start the game, pick and throw,
While some play fast, others play slow.
Looking at the table, you think you
Are dead,
No need to panic, change your hand
Just keep a straight face, as if playing poker,
You're still alive...you just picked
A joker.
The game's nearly done, and you
Just won!
"Mah Jongg," you do call...,
Collect from all.
