LESSON FOR THE KING
ONCE UPON AN ANCIENT TIME
IN THE MYSTICAL LAND OF ANCIENT RHINE
THERE LIVED A KING, PRICE
WHO WAS THE STRONGEST OF ALL 
AND THRICE AS 

BUT TO PICK OUT FAULTS, HE WAS VERY RUDE
AS HE HAD CONQUERED ALL THE SHREWDS1
HE IS WHO WE CALL AN ONE MAN ARMY
CAUSE HE STOOD SOLITARY WHILE
DEFEATING THE ENTIRE TENSHUARMY

ALSO OVERLY TOOK PRIDE IN HIMSELF
WELL NO ONE WS AS STRONG AS TWENTY THOUSAND SWELLS
STILL FLAUNTING ABOUT EVERYTHING
DIDN'T FETCH HIM ANY JEWELS

ONE DAY WENT ON AN EXPEDITION SINGLE
IN ORDER TO GAIN LUCK BY FOLLOWING SUPERSTITION
ON HIS JOURNEY, CAME ACROSS A BANYAN TREE
AND UNDERNEATH WAS SITTING A MONK CARE-FREE

ON BEING ASKED , INTRODUCED SELF TO BE THE MONK O WISE
WHO WAS WILLING TO WISE FOR THE NICE
THE MONK ASKED FOR PRICE’S POWER TO BE SHOWN
WELL IT WAS ALREADY READY TO BE FLOWN

ON SEEING THE MONK STOOD DAZZLED AND PARTLY BLIND
QUOTED PRICE TO BE ONE OF A KIND
BUT WHAT FOLLOWED NEXT FOREVER CHANGED THE KINGS MIND:-
“YOU CAN CRACK MOUNTAINS BY JUMPING ON BARE LAND
BUT CAN YOU SHRED A LEAF WITH JUST YOUR BARE HAND?”

THIS TURNED EVERYTHING TOPSY TURVY FOR PRICE
TO THINK EVEN THE LITTLEST OF THNGS COULD BEAT HIM
HIS SO CALLED UDISPUTABLE PRIDE WAS RUINED AS HE CRIED
BUT ONE GOOD THING DID COME OUT
A NEW PERSPECTIVE TOWARDS LIFE WAS DEVISED........
