Diamond King

Oh Diamond King, my sovereign reign, with gifts abound to share
showing off all that you have to anyone who stares.
Scepter in hand, what is your plan, ruler of this land?
Twisted scoundrel mustache, divisive rubbing hands.
Your land of dazzling sparkle stones tempts me with shiny things
But last and now forever more the Giants reign my diamond kings.

Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge is to take a chance, literally. Find a deck of cards (regular playing cards, tarot cards, uno cards, cards from your “Cards Against Humanity” deck – whatever), shuffle it, and take a card – any card! Now, begin free-writing based on the card you’ve chosen. Keep going without stopping for five minutes. Then take what you’ve written and make a poem from it.

From ocean view in Maui I used a random card shuffling program and drew the King of Diamonds.
