       A response the the challenge to write a poem about cards.

    It may help to know the King of Hearts is also known as the "Suicide King". This is derived from the knife he is sticking into the back of his head.

    I hope you enjoy it

    He anted up for an office fling,
    a passing passion and unimportant thing.
    It was a good gamble, so he thought…
    or perhaps he didn’t think at all.

    Contemplating the King of Hearts
    with envy and empathy,
    he is living a card bored life.

    He accepted the odds against getting caught,
    but now he resents his lack of contentment.
    He had not considered the whole cost of a loss,
    until he paid the bill with his best love.

    The ink runs on the faces and aces
    as he plays teary solitaire with a cheater

      This poem has everything...it's the right length, flows well, has dreadful puns (which i love!), doesn't take itself too seriously yet still contains a moral.

    very well done on this, it's a favourite for sure.

      I like this poem and the tongue- in- cheek humour ( not to mention the dreadful pun)
    "he is living a card bored life.''
    ha Ha Ha
    I enjoyed this poem with its playful use of words, and I liked the concluding line, nicely laced with citric acid…and a wry smile

    'as he plays teary solitaire with a cheater''
    you write with a light touch
    and it is very good

    Nice. I like all your references to cards, and "card bored" is a classic.

    It's very "lessony" in a way - cheat and this shall be your fate! Maybe you could expand it to use teo-timer, flush etc. I'm sure it could be lengthened without doing it any harm.

    So well done, any piece that makes the reader wish it was longer is good in my book!

    be happy

      this is really neat Chrystine. the side of the story no one talks about or considers before they make that big mistake. I think this is very original and creative and a great contribution to the challenge. nice write!

      I think this write is very clever...well composed and with a lot of imagination. And, it tells truth about what happens to cheaters.
    It is short, sweet and to the point and I think I will add it to my favorites because it holds all these qualities.
    I enjoyed this read very much!
