Joker

Deck of cards Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks, tens to twos, Jokers Can society not be balanced as deck with equal no of Haves and Have nots ? I love 53rd and 54th card, Joker As it does not belong to any Suit - Spade, Club, Diamond or Heart Can society be not classless, casteless akin to Joker, part of deck but not any suit? Joker just two in deck As against four of each rank in deck Can the flexibility to include / remove Joker not extended to Politicians in real game of life? Rested in pro-games, permitted in fun games Playing Joker mixes with card of any rank or any Suit With Joker’s adaptability, can society’s all Suits not live in harmony? Joker, colourful card favourite with kids Placed atop house of cards Like child, Joker ever smiles back; can we not ape Joker? Or child? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For Members contest : Pick A Card, any card by Paula Swanson ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a positively stunning parody on society, Hitendra!!!! A definite favorite for me. I just love the way you align with the Joker because he is adaptable enough to live in harmony with "all suits." If this were my contest, you'd take first place! To my faves along with you if you're not already there. Love, Carolyn

Classless societies do exist....in our eternity that we carve out for ourselves. This is very intellectual and much appreciated by this reader. Have a great weekend, Gwendolen
