Day 23, NaPoWriMo


one-eyed jack's“One-Eyed Jack”

You, One-Eyed Jack, you’ll be the death of me!

Seems trust is not a part of your true game.

You cover up and hid your feelings. Gee!

You bluff your way and cause my heart great pain!

You bluster, then you brag and then you choose

to hang out in the deck assiduously

with nothin’ but a moldy, meager deuce.

I’ve said before, you’re not the man for me.

The King is most adept at suicide;

a spear is stuck into his blatant head.

The Queen is stoic, in her hand she hides

a single posy in her hand, imbed.

But you, you bear a falsity; you hack!

Your game is dark and heathen, blackest Jack!

Find a deck of cards (regular playing cards, tarot cards, uno cards, cards from your “Cards Against Humanity” deck – whatever), shuffle it, and take a card – any card! Now, begin free-writing based on the card you’ve chosen. Keep going without stopping for five minutes. Then take what you’ve written and make a poem from it. (Hat tip to Amy McDaniel for the idea!)
