Tuesday Poetry: Joker’s Wild

They see me as something undesired
but the Royal Flush see me as Wild
sometimes called a jester or fool to some
but the Suicide King knows I’m not dumb

I can sit on the side and watch the game
or have the power to join just the same
I’m not counted among the fifty-two
I am the Chaos waiting to ensue

considered below those other Faces
my face always keeps them in their places
Numbers run amok whenever able
except when I’m on the Poker Table

some say the power is held by the King
or he’s under the Black Ace’s wing
no matter how others may often see
all of the Suits will always bow to Me
