[ The 2 of ♠ and the 4 of ♣ and the 3 of ♦ wander the checkerboard hills, their fa4ite hills, with light steps and whistles of cheer on their lips, and shovels in their hands. Skip, skip, skip over the hills and heave and ho, and down into the dirt they start 2 dig!
♦ There in the depths of the earth they dwelled-- ♦
♠ Only good things, I hope! ♠
♦ Only the best things! Precious things, treasured things, golden things! ♦
♠ Golden things! ♠
[ The 2 of ♠ and the 3 of ♦ plunge their shovels in2 the hill excitedly, excitedly and again and again, and the 4 of ♣ shovels with them, 2, but slowly, and slower, and stops. He scratches his head.
♣ Golden things in the earth? ♣
♦ Well, it was golden once! ♦
♣ What, the earth? ♣
♦ No, the other thing! Don't think, dig! Dig for the other things, the precious things, the treasured things, the golden things! ♦
[ Now the 2 of ♠ stops 2, and looks at the tunnel they made, look at the dark tunnel they made already! Such cards sure shovel swiftly, oh!
♠ If they were in the earth for so long, are they still golden? ♠
♣ Are they still golden? ♣
♦ Are they still golden? ♦
[ This gives the 3 of ♦ pause.
♣ If they were in the earth for so long, how will they look when they come out? ♣
[ This gives the 3 of ♦ creases and wrinkles and a little, little bit of worry. The 3 of ♦ steps away from their ditch.
The 2 of ♠ steps away from their ditch.
The 4 of ♣ steps away from their ditch.
♦ Maybe we... stop digging for precious things, for treasured things, for golden things. ♦
♠ There are perfectly decent things, perfectly nice things up here. ♠
♣ And we know what 2 expect! ♣
♦ And we know what 2 expect... ♦
