The confidence game we play
The stake’s to be negotiated
The consequences of what we say
The deck of cards
The wager we make
Our ability to deceive
What is at stake?
Self-interest is more dominant
A trait associated with those of fame
I before thou
The rule often used
An effort we make with no shame
We justify our questionable actions
We place ourselves out of view
A tactic that seems to work
For a conscience without any review
At times we must put faith in others
At times we must be willing to take risks
The day that the tables are turned
The walk in these shoes will be brisk
You told me that you’re covered
You told me that you’re OK
I thought I’d seek out confirmation
My expectation now validates my dismay
You said things intending to appease me
You said things only partially true
When did the confidence game become more important?
And what am I to construe?
