Part of my collection, and a favorite.

How interesting, the way that time
has played me like a card.
Set me down in proper place
just to make things hard.
Life removed the Joker,
so I’ll have to play his part.
Here I am, the Queen of Spades,
posing as the Queen of Hearts.

How interesting, the way that time
has robbed me like a crook.
Put the pistol to my head,
just like in the books.
I can’t remember anymore
all of the things it took.
I wouldn’t know what was mine
even if I tried to look.

How interesting, the way that time
puts the pieces all in place
like life is some sort of puzzle,
a picture of my face.
Each crooked piece that finds its way
into another’s space
takes me one step closer
to facing my disgrace.

How interesting, the way that time
gets away from me.
So many things I could have done,
if I had only seen
how much time I’ve wasted.
But now time is wasting me.
I guess it’s time I stopped this rhyme
and got myself some sleep.
