Less obvious

Drop the less obvious, the cryptic clue;

I expect that from others, not from you.

Your talent is to give it to me straight;

Which is why you remain my friend and mate.

So please, no subtle hints, no secret code;

My kind of game is where all hands are showed.

Discreet intimations just leave me cold;

I need the direct, the up-front, the bold.

Inklings and whispers are no solid base;

Give me the whole truth in front of my face.

Thank you to Telboy, Holden, Rudyard, Stephen and Leon for liking this poem. It isn't quite the Less Deceived, but at least it is less obvious.
