Kings And Paupers Poem by Sheeya Hacks

Kings And Paupers

Rating: 4.5

They live grandeur life
They rule the world
They rule the people
They sit on high place
They wear silken cloths
They eat best food
They sleep on foamy mattress
They have many wives
Yet when they die
They sleep in same coffin

They are born poor
Live on rotten food
Sleeps on dirt
Wear to cover the body
No money to enjoy life
Have no mates
Yet when they die
They sleep in same coffin.

An insightful depiction of vanity upon vanity that is the life of human kind. A highly philosophical yet spiritual piece of poetry, insightfully penned in poetic diction with conviction. Lovely poem bristling with wisdom. Thanks for sharing Sherya. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.

Kings! ! ! They rule the world! ! ! ! But, they cannot carry everything along, After they die! Buried in the same coffin. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.

If I could, I'd send you a message to tell you that I left stars and comments on Kings And Paupers, from 2016. ;)

I doubt this poem will help paupers OR kings, but it was entertaining and (basically) well-written. I'll give you 4 stars. bri : )

For clarity aka 'in order to make things clear', I suggest you begin your first stanza with 'Kings' and your second stanza with 'Paupers'. Those 'same coffins' must get VERY CROWDED! !

'Wear to cover the body'....I think you left out a word. They wear what? : ) 'No money to enjoy life' I suggest putting 'Have' in front of 'No'.
