What He Has Is Only Words - Poem by RIC BASTASA

FOR THE first time at the top
of the mountain
he feels that from now on
he rules as king

and he now wears a crown
and a scepter and now he shall have
his own kingdom
complete with a queen and
princes and princesses
and soldiers and
castles
and canons and balls

i hope he does not miss the essence
that what he has is only
words.
