And What Do The Simple Kings Do - Poem by Saiom Shriver

And what do the simple
kings do?

They need not take the
time to woo

By 'divine right'
they seize and rape
the beautiful wives
and virgins
in their kingdom

And steal the gold and lands
of their 'subjects'

And kill the noble stags
in 'the king's woods'
for kings love to
terrorize and to shed blood

And kidnap young men into
the king's army for
nefarious foreign ventures
from which these men return
maimed and old or coffined.

And that's
what simple kings do
