52 pieces

April 23, 2011
Straight and flat- Oh deck of Cards,
Your 52 pieces determine my fate,
A hierarchy rules your world.

With each turn, value revealed,
A different meaning for some,
No written rules, with no set path.

Bleak and simple, yet amusing,
Hours and hours spent with you,
Always changing, never a pattern.

Luck and chance, you impress on others,
Picking favorites, only one can win,
You wait, motionless, awaiting the game,
Your turn, my turn, the game begins.

I like it! You did a great job, poetically and I love the subject. My friends call me a bit of a card shark...I'm really good at card tricks. By the way, are you taking spanish? Because if you live in Amissville and go to the school I guessing you do, my mom would be your teacher, haha. :)
