Take a Wild Guess Day: Joker’s Wild

joker sTake a wild guess–what’s in my hand?
Gobbledygook?  Only a joke?
Hullabaloo?  Mirrors and smoke?

Juggle to play–where will they land?
Diamonds and kings?  Jack and a Trump?
Ace in the hole?  Or just a hunch?

Song and a dance–strike up the band!
Monkeys are here–business to make–
Chickens are counted–won’t calculate.

Quick!  Heads or tails?  Where do you stand?
Not fair at all?  Surely you jest–
I’m just a card–take a wild guess.

Constanza poem answering Jane Dougherty’s weekly challenge.

Take a Wild Guess Day, playing along with the Doodlewash month of celebratory days.

Artwork is an old piece done for an Illustrator class, 16 or 17 years ago.  A friend was getting a new computer and sold me her old one with a bunch of graphics programs included; it died after a couple years, as did my computer graphics explorations.

And another April fool.
