4 of [--] Clubs
The Deteriorate Event:
-- Destructive & Decimating

Pernicious fire and wanton destruction
Dastardly, deleterious reduction
Lackadaisical lethargy, loafing around
Feeble people, dead on the ground

Destructive devastation decimating
Lackadaisical lethargy loafing

A tornado is approaching. It threatens to destroy an already dilapidated house, a house that is already being destroyed by an arsonist. It’s just as well though, because we can see that termites were already doing their destruction long ago.

Four wands prop up the leaning structure, symbolizing a lackadaisical effort. If the house had survived much longer this approach would have proved to be ineffectual for sure. This house was weak from day one. The Big Bad Wolf could have knocked it down with a sneeze. It is a timid structure that has only stood this long by avoiding danger. Now it is condemned.

The fire symbolizes jeopardy. The hand setting the fire symbolizes a deleterious person bent on destruction. It is always easier to destroy than to create. This person is lazy, and as weak as the structure he burns. He expresses his weakness through his destruction. Someday, someone will burn him for sure.

You will lose your job. You will be deposed. You will change everything for the worst. You will lay around and let everyone else work.

Don't tear others down to make yourself feel better. Don't be self destructive. Don't resist change. Don't make people destroy you, to get you to change. Don't be lazy. Get a job!

A man of words and not of deeds, is like a garden full of weeds.
Idle hands are the devil's workshop.
