Circle in the Square

                    But lucky, sweet queen of

                clubs, so friendly and so happy.
                        Everyone loves her.

                   Now they gather in a circle

                    horrified by mad kings so
                     ready to march in battle.

                    Feeling sorry for shuffling
                    jacks who have no choice

                       but to follow royalty.

                     Wistful quiet ladies who

                     know how the deck has
                   been stacked against them.

                      Gathering to converse

                  about the insanity of warfare
                    fearing how it will all end.
