The castle of cards standing all up straight,
Amidst the battle of four kings, so naïve.
Each with a wife uglier than the other,
But shrewd are the Jacks that turn the game over.
Wilting cards, all one by one,
Sacrificed for their masters’ sheer fun.
But only a winner and only one king
Shall reign the realm, like forever they sing.
The mighty kings niche their aces
Just in time to triumph the crusade, when -
The spade plunges deep in the heart, O Red!
The clubs crush pride of the diamond so dread.
The black air thickens with the crimson galore,
All serving them for to see the other fall,
But little do they see the imp sneaking in -
O the Joker, let the havoc begin!
The castle of cards, trying hard to stand -
Lining up in pyramids tall for their kings;
Just then the Joker slips down its position,
The castle crumbles down and then there were none.
