Deck of Cards

Wanna play war? (shuffle)
Two cards flip. (shuffle)
Highest one wins. (shuffle)
Out or in?
Cut.

(slap slap) I win.
(slap slap) I win.
(slap slap) You win.

52 cards, 26 chances.
Slap the cards. That’s how to play.
Like an airplane swooping: Zhoom.

(slap slap) I win.
(slap slap) You win.
(slap slap) You win.
Tied.

52 cards designed for a standoff.
In ‘52, the B-52,
Strategic carrier loads 45:
Bomb bomb nuclear weapon. Bomb bomb chemical warfare.
Zhoom. (slap) Hanoi.
Zhoom. (slap) Iraq.
Zhoom. (slap) Enduring freedom.

26 cards left, half of 52,
26 weeks is half the year,
I’ll persevere for my career
I’ll learn to fear then disappear...
Here. (slap slap slap slap slap slap slap)

One. (slap) Two. (slap) Three. (slap)
Nine Trey, Four Deuce, Ace King, you win.

16 cards left, sweet 16,
Diamonds, Hearts, Clubs, and Spades.
(slap slap) I win. (slap slap) I win.
(slap slap) I win. (slap slap) You win.
(slap slap) I win. (slap slap) I win.
(slap slap) I win. (slap slap) I win!

Cards from the Arabs.
Cards tell your fortunes.
Cards without jokers.
Two cards flip. (shuffle)
Only one wins. (shuffle)
Out or in? (shuffle)
Cut.
