Riddle me this

If you must talk about something that isn't about grue slaying, adventuring or even drinking some of that tasty rye, then do it here.

Riddle me this

Yes, remember the Riddle Game topic? Fun times, weren't they? Let's see if we can start it up again (though I doubt it.) I'll ask a riddle, and the person who gets it first posts the next one. Simple.

Here we go.

A dozen Royals gathered round,
Entertained by two who clowned.
Each King there had servants ten,
Though none of them were also men.
The lowest servant sometimes might,
Defeat the King in a fair fight.
A weapon stout, a priceless jewel,
The beat of life, a farmer's tool.

Not necessarily. But do look at the last two lines, it's a dead giveaway when you think about it.

Nope. Again, look at the last two lines. Describing four different, unrelated things. What are they describing? That will lead you to the answer.

I would answer the riddle but I don't have a riddle of my own to state.

Ah, heck with it.  It's a deck of pocker cards.

To keep things moving, here's one I wrote:

Summoned with a simple command,
Travels far yet will never stand,
Bites the cold, reveals unseen,
Feeds on that which once was green.

My guesses for the 2nd riddle:

a snail?  fungus?  toadstools?  can you summon a toadstool??

hmm....

how about a tree?  but isn't a tree standing????

okay...well, how about the wind?  hot chocolate?????

Maybe I need to go back to my thinking chair, mister.
