The game of Bridge is not real hard;
You do need fifty-two cards.
Hopefully, this poem will plant a seed;
For a partner is what we need.
The lucky number in bridge is thirteen;
That number is used a lot in the bridge scene.
To each player, thirteen cards will pass;
And thirteen tricks are in the players grasp.
To win the game is everybody’s plan;
So we’re all looking for a good hand.
Must have thirteen points to open the bid;
If you’re the winner you’ll be glad you did.
To bid you must be really brave;
The highest suit is spades.
Sometimes you may feel you’re in trouble;
Maybe then you’ll be able to bid double.
And just when you think you’ve been stumped;
Your partner will bid the highest, no trump.
Bridge is a real exciting game;
And no hand is ever the same.
Remember “bidders are winners”, this is true;
Come join us and the winner could be you.
The Bridge Center is a great place to start;
There you’ll meet the leaders, Diane and Art.
The Bridge Center is a very friendly place;
Most people start playing with a smile on their face.
