Wars Rage On

Tyrants reside 
In ivory towers
High above the 
Light of heaven

Below the lowly 
Jacks for hire
Smoking bones of 
Men of seven

Lonely queens 
Await return
Of knights and kings 
On noble quest

Out for blood 
The aces burn
They rape and plunder 
At their behest

Carving dreams 
Into the skin
Only the jokers 
Stand a chance

Wars rage on 
Again and again
Until tyrants fall 
Upon heaven's lance
