A Piece Of Advice


King's men are the ears to the King.
King as usual sees through them.

You are as good or as bad to the King
As King's men narrate you to the King.

Don't confuse today
there is neither any Kingdom
nor there any King.

There are too many Kings' men
there are too many Kings.

If you are not stupid
Please the kings' men to please the King.

Or they hold the power
to destroy you in a blink.

You need not worry how are the Kings' men
Or how is the king.

For saving your soul first
sing to please kings' men, sing.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
