Why is life so complicated
with people playing hearts
for diamonds and digging
gold with spades willing to
club others for their gain?
“It’s all in the deck,” she said.
“You have to play with the hand
life deals you.”
Echoed words of the Jester
sneering in smug chicanery.
But I think in black and red
and that suits me fine
for I believe there is a true Ace
which profits every hand
and the choice is ours.
