E cuyim quxekr fesgiqic quamc,

Sgi kuvirs riqtems rulisolir lofgs,
Sgfod qoed mo fmoj igs seidic

Question decryption ... spoiler ... and a question | Comment 3 of 7 |

Yes, this describes a deck of cards:

A dozen royals gathered round,
E cuyim quxekr fesgiqic quamc,
Denwolc ohw owt yb denaitretne.
Cimvukb ugv uvs xz cimeosqismi.
Each King there had servants ten,
Iebg Jomf sgiqi gec riqtemsr sim,
Nem aslo erew meht fo enon hguoht
Mil erku iqiv ligs du imum gfaugs
The lowest servant sometimes might,
Sgi kuvirs riqtems rulisolir lofgs,
Thgif riaf ni gnik eht taefed
Sgfod qoed mo fmoj igs seidic
A weapon stout and a priceless jewel,
E vienum rsuas emc e nqobikirr hivik,
Loot s'remraf a dna efil fo taeb eht.
Kuus r'qilqed e cme idok du seiz igs.

However, shouldn't erku be urke? The way it reads now is though none of them were olsa men.
