Poet and playright Federico García Lorca said it before and this is a suitable time to let the world know.

Rephrasing a poet´s popular poem

This is a popular poem by poet and playright Federico García Lorca, assasinated in Granada at the beginning of the latest Spanish civil war that has been sung by countless folk singers in Spain.
"if your mother wants a king,
the playing cards have four...!

They´re ace of clubs, gold, spade and cups. Or, this is, at least, as they´re named Kings!
Thus, if she wants a king, she´s got four to choose from to play cards with her friends and neighbours, having a drink as she plays and to have a joyous time. Do get her these playing cards for her at Christmas or on Mother´s Day, but refrain her to support a dinasty that has done more evil than good.
Don´t get her to support these kings that have plunged a country into backwardness and ruin. Give her a good bunch of playing cards to let her king have a win, but tell her that these other kings on their thrones need no support but a kick on their arse.
If this king thinks he´s going to get away with his deeds, he´s wrong, because he might as well be taken to face the Courts.
If his bold son thinks he´s going to have it nice and easy to deal with the folks, he might as well have one or two problems to sort out.
If his great grandfather had to take his leave, he might as well have to.
"If your mother wants a king, the playing cards have four to choose from..."
A good kick on the Bourbon to let us live in peace!
