the guesser.

Standard

writing on his well-worn pad

then guessing out loud all day

birthdays, weights, ages

at 10 dollars – 40 dollars to play

he was a winner each and every time

ย amazing and flattering his crowd

even when he gave away a toy

what did the guesser have to lose?

“guessing a thing ain’t knowing a thing.”

    • birthdays – makes sense. age and weight, his approach was probably to go somewhat under, flatter the person a bit, he allows a margin of error as part of the deal and he still wins even he gets it wrong, as they’ve already paid him 10-40 dollars.
