Climb (an acrostic poem)

Cliff below and cliff above

Left Hermione hanging for her life

It was a real rush putting it all on the line like this

Making it a contest of wills, hers against her body’s

Betting on herself she lunged for the next handhold

Bluff (an acrostic poem)

Betting it all, Michaela sat back and waited

Looking her opponent straight in the eye

Under her stern stare, he began to wilt

Folding, he threw his cards in.  He showed her a pair of kings

Flipping one of her cards, an ace, she reached for her chips, hiding her four
