Ok, so I'll go first with the Fool and then I'd suggest we just post about "the next card" when the fancy takes someone.
This card is very Pied Piper of Hamelin. Now, in that story the villagers didn't pay and so the Piper took all of their children...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pied_Piper_of_Hamelin
In this Fool the Piper is him?self a child. Maybe just starting out on a career? From the Wiki entry, this
Merriam Webster definitions (metaphors):
a charismatic person who attracts followers
one that offers strong but delusive enticement
a leader who makes irresponsible promises
So a connection with a Fool, a more dangerous one than usual because he leads others as well as himself into potential danger...
It's a hen attached to him is it? If it were a cockerel then this can stand for "betrayal", don't know about a hen. Except that they are thought of as foolish?
