The Rune And The King - Poem by Naveed Akram
A rune has strength of a thousand men
Who received a letter from the king,
They followed his instructions to the letter,
You must be certainly his own henchmen.
I received a note from the queen about endangerment,
I was a man of letters, receiving a call from the king as well.
A gold chain hung, a silver charm strummed,
I followed the instructions to the letter.
The letters spelt out disaster,
The notes turned out to be false,
Like any amiable character.
A hospitable man received from me
Empowerment of a thousand men.
He won my heart, turning out as a heart
Of many colours of winning ways.
The good-natured king lit his light and faded
Into the shadows of his court,
To emerge victorious to the letter.
