The Joker


I am known as the fool,
the clown, the jester.
I call all the tricks;
I’m the face of all clever.

I know of no suit
for I am my own.
I’m the ace of all trades,
King to all thrones.

No one dare defy me
for I am the worst best.
They cower at my cunning
and laugh at all my jest.

Blind to black and red,
I’m the trump of the wild.
Behold, I am the deck
that all trades compile.

I am the beginning
and the end as well.
And I laugh at my bearing
like everyone else…

A villain? a hero?
I’m the joker…

Hi! I'm Rose. I fancy myself a poet sometimes... But really, I'm just a dreamer- a wonder wanderer. Words are my photo albums.
