5 of [--] Clubs
The Uncontrolled Middle:
-- Fractious & Grappling
Grappling in vain over rivalry
Arguing on and on, o so petty
Fractious altercation, over it
Malfeasance, violation, now we split
Fractious altercation violating
Rivalrous malfeasance grappling
Two antagonistic races fight over five wands. They each have two, but they must have the last one in order to win. They are being irrational and illogical.
As they grapple for advantage, we see that they have torn up a contract. After much argumentation, there is nothing but disagreement here. Its a riot.
The stirred up hornets nest symbolizes a transgression that leads to an uncontrollable situation. We need some discipline here.
The two flags of diametrical colors symbolize the antagonism between these two sides. There is a valley between them where they could find common ground, but instead it is a battlefield.
The sky is half clouds and half darkness symbolizing a midpoint transition between bad and worse. All this arguing is just making things worse.
You will lose control. You will ruin everything. You will get in trouble.
Don't marry this person. Don't be unreasonable. Stop arguing. Stop the bullshitting. Shut up! Two wrongs don't make a right. Don't transgress the unwritten laws. Don't be litigious.
The second word makes the fray.
Arguing with a fool shows there are two.
