Over Fifty In My KingdomRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
There are over fifty members in my family;
Yet none quarrel. We all live merrily.
Four leaders have we, all with a bride;
Each has a son who has great pride.
We also have servants who make funny gestures;
But they are hardly used, as they often pester.
The peasants are at the bottom of the line;
Although they outnumber us, they haven't a right mind.
What are we?
HintLook in the third stanza for a homonym.
AnswerA Deck of Standard Playing Cards
Fifty-four cards in a standard deck.
Four Kings, four Queens, and four Jacks.
The servants are the Jesters.
The peasants are the number cards.
