A Weak Little Riddle



I'm very thin . . . a weak, little thing,

The strength I can wield would subdue a king.

I'm rather large and very small,

Upon my throne I'm oh so tall!

I carry few, I can carry many,

A fortune for some, and less than a penny.

I was a mother who bore three brave

Then spit them out upon the wave.

Dressed in black for a Painless demise,

But just a ruse for laughing eyes.

Water has saved me, with water I die,

Down to the bottom, but boy, can I fly!

Yay! CLOSURE! Thanks Molly. Curious . . . On hindsight, does it look that difficult?

Not particularly.  I got hung up on Ace for quite awhile (the card + a pilot).

"spit them out upon the wave" and the MASH reference really stumped me, as well. 

It definitely passes the decalogue, and I think the answer is obvious in hindsight.
