Beheaded


'Beheader, Beheader!
Off with his head!
He's mocked the Queen,
So, he should be dead! '

'But M'Lord, M'Sire,
He said not a word,
He merely coughed,
That's all she heard! '

'I am the king,
I make the rules,
So cut off his head,
You hideous fool! '

The king's mistake,
What did him in,
His swollen ego,
That lies within,

The angry beheader,
The one who is armed,
Is never told off,
So he was alarmed,

He grabbed the king,
Threw him down,
Whacked off his head,
And stole his crown,

So don't be a snob,
To those who are less,
For y'might end up,
In a bloody mess.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
