A sword in the hands
of a clown
has torn the curtain down
revealing the ugly truth
the rot at the root
of our society.
The cards begin to fall...
one by one
until there are none.
A house of cards defiled.
Beware, The Joker is wild!

The 'rot' is our society. The flowers have long since died and the whole deck is to blame, not just "the joker".

First, you have to know who the Joker is. He is not the same as the clown who is pretty clear.
