The Deal by Eric R Ganz

is it chance or happenstance
the deck that’s dealed, and cards reveal
a fate,
we own, or dice are thrown
what’s been seen, for Kings and Queens,
are caught between
a 2 of hearts, and part,
they must.
to trust the Hand, or write in sand
a Suicide King, the deck
does bring
and slays the Ace, of Spades
we chase.
and Diamond Eye Jacks the Jokers laugh,
a 2 of Hearts torn, in half.
in half,
A dark deal, done, a game is won.
And far apart from cards and care
the King and Queen,
play solitaire
E.R. Ganz
