Slept With Royalty - Poem by kelvin karani

* the Swazi affair

an ant stands higher
than the earth beneath
but things much taller
still exist, each in its place

but you, chief, justice minister
in the warmth of a queen's thigh
got dumb after a dip
and forgot to rise early

your crime, common as it is
attracts severe consequences
royalty stands desecrated,
the king mourns agitated
