It has always been astounding to me that people expect a king to live in a palace.
To sit on a thrown, wear a long, royal robe.
His head adorned with the most brilliant crown made of gold and rubies.
Proudly holding a sceptre of diamonds in his hand as he is greeted "your majesty."
People expect the spectacle, they want the theatrical, and all too soon they forget the real purpose, the true reason, a genuine ruler.
His royalness is as royal as a butterfly,
his commoness is as common as a caterpillar,
his thrown is built with his good deeds,
his efforts and services fashion him a royal robe,
his justice is his staff, his honesty embellish it with precious stones,
his majesty is his mighty heart and the look upon his people's faces when he rescues and takes care of them, is his glorious crown.

A king only eats after his people have eaten.
He does not sleep until his people are safe.
He crowns himself with goodness and wears jewels of purity, humility and wisdom.
