The pocket cards are your genetics.

The community cards are the environment.

You cannot escape your pocket cards.

They are with you the whole hand.

Their worth changes in relation to the changes in the community cards.

The flop is when you were status, place of birth, wealth.

The turn is when you become an adult, and your training is over and you enter the hope for a good job.

The river is the middle of life, where you either get lucky (-ier) and retire with success...or end up in the gutter.

If you have to wait for fifth street, holding on to the very end, then you haven't planned very well.

People can bluff you with worse birth cards, make you think you're not as good as them. Sometimes they do better than those to the Flop born.

And then some people turn a straight. This is the factory worker who wins Mega-Millions.

But don't count on it.
