Grabbing Karma by the Reins

Part I of VIII: Luck of the Draw


Poor Rook, unbeknownst to him

The Wildcard, whom he considered a friend

Is actually his Queen of Hearts

And now she lay face down and lost

Innocent victim of a battle’s cost

In this one-sided game of war


One man’s garbage is another man’s gold

As the past events presently unfold

To Jesher, the Queen of Hearts by choice

To Ethan, the demonic raven’s voice

To the former, all he found is lost

To the latter, no matter what the cost

To steal the demonic voice from the host

To lose what Rook unknowingly wanted most
