A comparison of two characters

This week’s reaction poem compares the main characters from two different shows. I’ve started putting the shows and references only in the tags to give people a chance to read the poem without knowing what they are.

I Want My Life Back

Is it better to play the hand you’re dealt?
For two men the same words have opposite meanings
A world one wants to exit, the other to reclaim
Can’t see what’s right in front of you

For two men the same words have opposite meanings
One’s hand if full of secrets without skill
The other knows the game is not in the cards
Learning the rules doesn’t mean you’ve agreed to play

A world one wants to exit, the other to reclaim
One can’t turn his back on friends in danger
The other knows a spy is a spy until he is dead
You have a death grip on the hand you’ve fought to discard

Is it better to play the hand you’re dealt?
You can bluff with a Jack-two off-suit
Or you can change the game to Deuces Wild
When no one’s looking
