25 June 2014 – Hearts and Spades

Have you ever wondered why

a spade is shaped like a heart?

Perhaps it is to make things easier

when one seeks to bury a heart in the ground.

Perhaps a spade is that shape

because some fellow couldn’t think of how

to fix the spade-head.

Perhaps a spade is shaped so

for the simple reason that that was how

it was intended to be shaped.

A heart and a spade

they are similar in nature:

each has among them thirteen parts.
