Your Majesty


Your majesty, if you will
I realize that I am not worthy
Of licking the slime from your shoes
But I would that I could

Your majesty, don't you see
You're worth nothing to me
Though the world may worship you
You're simply a chauvinistic pig

Your majesty, we can tell
That you hold yourself in high opinion
You find no self faults
And you are self-centered

Your majesty, we realize
That you are blind to your own faults
And you are blind to the trials of others
You believe yourself to be the center of the Universe

Your majesty, anyone is better
Than you, in your self-possessed vanity
And the world realizes that I
Am more beautiful than you

Your majesty, none would ever
Get in line to be your queen
Because you are ruthless, selfish, vain
And none could be uglier than you

Your majesty, we all hope
That you realize the err of your ways soon
Because if you don't, we will revolt against you
And I shall be placed upon the throne over you

Your majesty, start to change
For the people around you change
And increasingly learn to hate you
So try harder to make others happy

Your majesty, instead
Of revelling in your own "beauty"
You should be striving to make the world more beautiful
Instead of making it an even uglier mess that we are left to clean up
Thank you, your majesty

    i just posted a new poem about The King......His Royal Highness: TKTWBH. hope everyone likes it; well not everyone since not everyone has the refinement to enjoy it............like Gwenevere and I have. and The King really did tell me most of the stories about Him that are in my poem. It should be listed under LONG in my poem list. (Report) Reply

    i love TKTWBH....well at least i enjoy his humor a lot. i have submitted one medium-sized poem about His Majesty, entitled I Doubt You King....something like that. i have a much larger one i have yet to submit as it is awaiting typing. i read the above some time ago and may have sent you a message about it. i know i have not told you though that i believe the first stanza does not make much sense to me when compared to what comes after it. ? ? ? i like this a lot more than the love/death/tears types of poems. not that those kind aren't well-written.

    I love it, I really do. Yes I am selfish and yes I do
    think the world revolves around me, and yes I do
    put myself before anyone else, but thats because
    I am King Big Head the best poet in the world.
    A really great poem by the way.

    Your King. (Report) Reply
