Eight of Diamonds

There are 54 cards in a deck,

And only twelve are royalty.

I feel sorry for the folks

Who are stuck as a two or a three.
I wondered what card I was:

I’ve not the talent to be an ace,

And I’m really not a joker.

Would I ever find my place?
And then strolling down the sidewalk

I found eight diamonds on the ground,

So I sold them. Now I’m rich

And I don’t worry about this crap anymore.
