Aside

King
Powerful throne
Ruled the land
Wicked and wild: exalted
Palaver and a breached rule
Conceited, obsesses and vanity consumed
Luxurious living while the common man died
Foreign invasion, decaying policies and shattered economy followed
The men revolt, the king escaped but caught by revolutionaries to be hanged
Tortured and imprisoned in the land he once ruled
Cognizance that empire stood on pillars of sand
The walls close up on him and silence crept
A puppet on string, slave to desires
Regret, remorse, misery and illness
To be hanged in the street
The days follow slowly
Awaiting death: tears
Sweet death
END

Viva la vida
