dVerse … Skat … August 6, 2014

TavernSkat

The dame in the moon
An old man and a bat
Met at the pub to play skat
Now, just imagine that!

(‘Twas it baseball with a bat?
Now I’m sure that I’m right
Skittles with a bat?
Just can’t imagine that  …)

The game ’twas skat
The dame in the moon an old man
and a bat
Did you get that?

They’d meet in the pub
Down by the bay
They’d order some grub
Grab the cards and then they’d play …

(You mean with pins and a ball
Can’t play skittles with cards
Can’t play baseball at all
What was the game called? )

The game ’twas skat
The dame in the moon an old man
and a bat
Did you get that?

They’d drink their grog
Taking turns with the dealing
Until up came the fog
Then, they’d go out and they’d jog …

(‘Twas it pinochle they played
‘Til up rose the fog —
And who went to jog
An old man a bat and a dog?)

The game ’twas skat
The dame in the moon an old man
and a bat
Did you get that?

Not pinochle not baseball
Not skittles but skat!
The dame in the moon and a bat
With an old man, now imagine that!

(Uhm … What’s skat?)

(C) G.s.k. ’14

… tell us a story…

If you’re up for an extra challenge, tell us about the old man, the moon and a little bat who meet at night here in the pub for a game of skat sometimes… you never saw them…? see, they’re a bit shy.. usually but… maybe if you’re quiet… and maybe you can even tell us what they’re talking about… smiles.

  1. smiles… i didn’t know that skat is not so well known in other parts of the world…it’s quite popular here.. a typical pub card game… smiles… love the repetition – works so well…

    • Thanks Claudia … I’d never heard of the game myself, googled it but I live in Italy and the only card game I know are pinochle, scopa, scala quaranta and bridge 🙂
