The deck of Cards (the club and diamond)

 The two frowning men,

with their unkempt stubble,

sooty hands and silent postures

looked on in blackness at the young prince,

as he strutted across the village square,

flanked by gruff guards with pointy spikes.


One whispered something in the others ear

and he smiled with skulduggery.

The young prince with his chest puffed wide

continued to boast around his square,

and as he passed the men

they were now grinning even more broadly.


The prince now looked puzzled as their gaze fell on him,

and continued to parade along, but this time with less convictions.
