The King's Joker: The Battle Of the Poets


Would they leave the palace gate?
Let the poets wait there, wait!

Send the ham and bring the wine,
Let them fight for one more line,

Will they write to the men's sake,
One is true, the rest are fake!

You’ll stand and sing for your king,
Will he gives you the gilded wing?

As royal knights you would leave!
Make the king enjoys his eve.

Say the truth and spare your lies,
Between his hands the men dies!

It's your faith don't be that nice!
Throw you dice and wait the price..


HaHa..Ha!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I like the character of the king's jokers.
and the way they say their poetry!
so.. I wanted to speak in their tongue! !
and I made a short story through the poem,
to give it a purpose and a real action..

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
