Playin poker at a table

from Lupe Fiasco – Twilight Zone Lyrics on Rap Genius


Since the song is called Twilight Zone, this line is an allusion to the famous contemporary painting of dogs playing poker at a table, which itself was thought to be absurd, or something that would appear from a metaphorical twilight zone. Lupe reverses many connotative roles throughout the song, and this is just one example.
