Five prisoners sit around a table playing cards and betting. Another prisoner approaches one of the men and asks to be included. Ships are seen in the background.
Standing prisoner: “Mr. Can I come in the game.”
First prisoner: “That’s low, that’s out.”
Second prisoner: “No you can’t come in this game, I believe your the cause of my bad luck.”
Third prisoner: “I think high goes out before low.”
Fifth prisoner: “Who in the devil could play such hands as I get.”
