King Duncan - Poem by Pratheek Praveen Kumar in Calm Reflections

A patriarchal figure of Scotland,
Who Macbeth was to send,
To his death, so that he may become ruler,
Which attracted a great deal of furor.

In Macbeth did Duncan place trust,
However, this all was to turn to dust,
As ambition came over Macbeth like a flood,
And this resulted in the shedding of Duncan's blood.

Macbeth's cousin was Duncan,
However Macbeth did leave his guards drunken,
And crept to his chamber and dealt the blow,
Which would seeds of his own destruction sow.

A worthy king was Duncan indeed,
His country to great heights did he lead,
He destroyed his enemies one by one,
And then left it all to Malcolm, his son.

He trusted Macbeth to the hilt,
And with his help was his empire built,
However, in the end by Macbeth was he killed,
As Macbeth was with ambition filled.
