The Red King


The Red King is strong and mighty
With great intentions he rules his kingdom
But his eyes gave him problems
and his heart gave him trouble
———————————————
The Eyes of the Red King
Are full of pride and destruction
They seek to defend its nation
And control its eight seas
——————————————-
His eyes lust for power and safety
His heart thirsts for control and protection
His eyes are like a tractor beam
Attempting to pull people in his way
——————————————-
His heavy eyes seek revenge and hostillity
Towards those who abuse, oppose and reject him
He thinks of himself so highly
Lowliness seems to be an offense
——————————————-
His eyes judge and criticize the masses
Condemning people for not lining up
His anger bursts like a supervolcano
Towards anyone who would slight him
——————————————-
With a thousand cameras he protects his soul
He makes sure he gets what he wants
With walls he separates himself
from the untouchables in his kingdom
—————————————-
He controls his kingdom with an iron fist
Seizing anyone who violates anything
Anything can set him off
Turning him into leviathan
—————————————
He thinks himself as an alpha
Thinking he is all-knowing, unstoppable and superior
Even the betas are intimidated
As he uses alpha abillities as a weapon of war
————————————-
Striving for the causes of his kingdom and seas
His eyes are still set on his own self
Thinking he is right and just
He slights people for the cause
————————————
He dominates everything
Collecting the spoils as he goes
He runs into trouble marking territory
as his neighboring kings despise him
————————-
His authority is over reaching
Defending and Controlling everything he could see
Even though he tried to protect himself
He lost many wars and battles
———————————-
Since he was controlling
Others sought to control him
But control from others is prohibited
In the Eight Seas and Kingdom
————————————
His eyes seem to overlook many things
Causing his heart to act foolish
Thinking he is such an alpha
He really is a Pi,3.14
———————————-
He has the best of intentions
Wanting everything to succeed
But his heart fails him
And his eyes deceive him
————————-
His heart is so heavy
From the pains and toils of life
He controls and defends the kingdom and seas
So his kingdom and seas can be upright and safe
——————————-
The Red King had many issues
Everything to him is a blur
He protected himself from harm
So people will understand him
———————-
The threat of war and battle
Vexes the Red King's Heart hundredfold
He prepares his troops into battle
To face the tribulation ahead
———————————-
However, The Red King sees danger like a cardinal
Thrusting himself into his shadow
Thinking somethings going on
When its in the figment of his imagination
—————————-
Other Kings were turned off by the Red King
His excessive demands were too much
His Kingdom suffered as a result
And it only grew worse
——————————
The Red King couldnt see past his self
Other Kings were neglected and abused
The Red King lost support and allies
As all trade routes were cut
—————————-
The Red King lives in isolation
Drowns in his sorrows and griefs
With no one to turn to
He becomes a vagabond in the country side.
