King Of Fools

by Shakespear1

To The Gambling Addicts

The King of Hearts is hot in pursuit
of the Queen of Diamonds, who remains mute

Unlucky in love, lucky at cards
so say the wise old bards

Fate deals your opponent a pair
but your Three of a Kind doesn't care

up from the table you start to arise
but a Low Straight takes you by surprise

Fifty-two cards in all
win or lose, you still fall

The Ace of Spades
delivers a message from Hades

While the One-eyed Jack
rides your back,

the Jack of Knaves
is digging fresh graves

The King of Clubs bloodies your head
pain and loss fills your bed

You gamble your fortune on a single Ace
And lose it all without a trace

Yet you return for more
hat in hand, begging at the door

Your life is a shamble
your lust is to gamble

You stand convicted
Your fate is predicted

You are the King of Fools
playing a game, that honors no rules

You dream of riches and surroundings plush
forever pursuing that elusive Flush

You spend your time chasing Four of a Kind
when there are more productive ways to use your mind.

If you have FAITH to trust in the turn of a card
then why not use that POWER to trust in GOD.
