Cards

A deck of cards. 52 cards. or rather 54. The jokers are important cards in a deck.
So 53 options. which one am I?
what? what do I mean which one am I?
Take cards to be people, characters...personality types:
First the suits. Hearts, Spades, Diamonds or Clubs.
The Hearts derived from the image or a goblet...imagery of clergy...loving. loving to extremes...no not a heart.
Diamonds...from coins...wealth, obviously not.
Clubs...big stick to hit people with...mindlessly violent. No.
The Spades...derived from 'spade' in Italian meaning sword...military...thought out attack...planning....yes, a card of spades.
The number...
well...
the ace, the card with two personalities, the undecided card, the card that chooses the value it needs at that point in time, smallest or highest value in a deck...so adaptable...very useful...but not me.
the face cards...Jack, Queen or King...
well...the queen is out of the question...
the the other two..well...never really been a front man...shown...well known...the opposite of subtle...the cards with the publicity.
the ten...X in Roman Numerals...well well well, now there's a coincidence...or is it?
the ten card...not as famous as the face cards..no...not half as famous and well recognized, but here's the interesting thing...of equal value in most games...not in poker of course, where its all about who you're with or who you are not what you can do....but we can't win all games...

not a good looking card, rather crammed...too much things to fit one card it seems... definitely less aesthetically pleasing than any of the cards between 2 and 6, and the 8, but at least it has symmetry so better than the 7 and 9...
yes i think a ten...
yes...
an X card...
the X or spades...
...


"Deal me!"

Take cards to be men... you need a heart to love them, a diamond to marry them, a club to beat them and a spade to bury them!!!
I had heard this somewhere. If I had to pick my card I would be a 4 of diamonds.
Nice one Sim. Al

ooo i like, i only got as far as hearts, i cant hink of a number id be...actually was thinking about it, the joker has alot of meaning..funny and entertertaines but is 'put to side' when not needed. Not the most popular but always a joy to have. Hehe im getting the hang of it
