King (Remove filter)
It's a beauty to see a bird bouncing from the fields
to take a flight with its mighty wings...
One of them can fly just over the mountain,
and hastily come back to its hollow nest...
The other one has the power to kiss the sky,
and fetch the pearls of heaven...
Their King let's the former to exploit its mightiest might,
and the latter is left to fate with paralysed wings...

A bow to The Poetry King,
who thinks he doesn't
mean a thing
in the grand scheme.
Wears his heart
on stained sleeve,
makes paupers feel
Waxes poetic about
life, love, and history
that would otherwise remain
More than just a dream,
The Poetry King
in you and me.

Is the ruler of man
Is admired protector
Is wise in his decisions
Sits on a thrown placed there by God
What is a King?
It is not children
Arguing over a legacy
It is not greed
A down payment on history
It is not a family name
A generation brings it to shame
It is not selling tickets
To a path paved by dog bite...

cannot help but
that set spirits
free, no matter
the cost of their

Good people of this Christian land,
Here before you now I stand
And come me hither I, to die,
For by the law condemned am I,
And not a word in protest muttered,
Let not a ‘treachery’ be uttered,
These lands demand my soul depart,
By pain of death and muted heart.
For at thy King’s pleasure, ‘tis true,
I soon, to take my leave of you,
I pass not blame, nor beg for life,

King 1 - Queen 2
Wath - Queen of Villages reigned
in her flower garden
her turnip grubbing fields
her pig pens and her byres
subjects tugging forelocks
native speech a country slide
years before the pits
When Wigan coalpits died
the King - black in workings underground
emerged in Wath to drag her subjects down
drawing men across the border...
