King Of Clubs: A Very Old Man With Very Large Wings

I'm skipping ahead to the King of Clubs because there is a king in this song. I'll come back to the Jack and Queen in the next two weeks.

This song started with some of the lyrics then I just built upon them as I went. I got to a point where I thought of a short story that I read in college by Gabriel Garcia Marquez called "A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings." I remembered the title a little differently last Monday when I was working on this though, hence the title of the song. When I found the story in my old book I realized the difference. In any case, the story by Marquez and the story in this song bear very little resemblance except for the Old Man within.

I thought about Michael Zapruder's songs when working on this one.
