THE CARDS ON THE TABLE

The cards are on the table
For everyone to see
that the Queen loves her Jack
And the Jack his Queen

The King doesn’t notice
perhaps he doesn’t care
He’s too busy winning money
and counting up his share

The Ace of Hearts is shocked
as is the Deuce of Spades
All the Diamonds and the Clubs
start to feel disarrayed

The King, slightly miffed
looks up from his hoard
saying “Shuffle and deal.
I’m a very busy lord!”


The cards are on the table
For everyone to see
that the Queen loves her Jack
And the Jack his Queen

Yes, the Queen has her Jack
and the Jack his Queen
While the King counts his money
assiduously
