I Want A King's Daughter - Poem by samuel nze

I want a king's daughter
To be my friend
But she is too proud
Her head is up in the sky.

Let me whisper in your ears, friend
You must cut the head
Axe to her neck
She is not the only princess.

Ah, but that is cruel
I cannot do it
If her head towers
Then I must let mine too

Suit yourself then
I give you solemn advice
But you refuse to heed
You will end in stroke

A Compromise then
I will sit and stare at her
Maybe she will of her own accord
Hunt me like a chick.

Afterall she is the eagle
Ugonna is her name
The eagle of her father
The eagle of a king.

    Different. But I understand where you are coming from. I want a King with a Kingdom as a dowery. YEH that would be great.
