Special Status

aces come forth do you rule
or are you lowest lower than
two not royal family for sure

all are equal but not in power
to win tricks or confrontation
higher beats lower as in life

aces' rank depends on game
high-low makes it go around
what if you are born a seven

or three or nine ten has some
special status top commoner
lords it over inferior numbers

smug the royals live in fear
an ace can humiliate a king
a trump reduce them to zip

wouldn't you rather be a five
or eight two would be easy
no expectations little stake
