Bridge Nursery Rhyme

cartoon picture of four playing cards Ace, King, Queen, Jack

Two and fifty cards
Were placed into a pack
Half of them were red
And half of them were black 

When the pack was dealt 
The kings began to cry
They knew they’d lose to aces 
And the queens would qualify
 
The ten was at the table 
Counting out his tricks 
The jack was in the dummy
Playing politics 
 
The nine was with declarer
In a devil of a hand 
The awful distribution
Was not what he had planned
 
The eight was quite nefarious 
As were the three and two
All the missing numbers  
Gave him far too much to do 
 
The robots at the table 
Were laughing as they played 
You should have seen their faces
When the contract made
