We’re stuck in a House of Cards

Full of smoke and mirrors

It stands only by circumstance

And plays off our fears

The game will go on till there's nothing left

Synchronicity or conspiracy

We shouldn't have to guess

The devil will lose focus

The cards won’t hold forever

Not too long now

I think I felt a tremor

Who will bump the table?

The house is unstable

How long before the predator is slayed

There is a champ who has won in the past

He went away and didn’t come back

He will when it’s time to deliver

When there's multiple holes

And the devil starts to shiver  

All of the cards will fall,

Tumbling to the ground

The magician and the clown

Black, white, and red

Queens and kings

Will fall to their death

The joker will tip the tower

Were in for nasty weather

How will the cards give?

A slam of a door

A shake of a fist

The whisper of a wolf

Or the squeal of a pig

They sigh as secrets are taken and sold

They aren’t playing fairly

This house has holes

Vampires and cattle

Cat and Mouse

The yarn slowly unravels

Any slight movement

It will come crashing down

Call it good

Call it evil

In the end it’s all the same

To the handlers of the game

Next move take your time

This could be the last deception

The last gamble

In the history of time

Tick Tock

Don’t you want to play?

The room is getting hot

The pressures heavy

I’m waiting for the man of the hour

Who will come barging through the doors

Once the cards hit the floor

Waiting for the chaos to unfold

Puppeteers hunt the Puppet Master  

But The real king is coming

The game of now is mere child’s play

I hear drops of rain against the card walls

It’s sweat from the players

The sun will set sooner or later

Good or bad?

Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder
