The heads of defeat
 that line mental streets
A form of glory
 a blood trickle of treats
So i fold up my banner
 and seek higher ground
to the sound of the crowds
 how's and wow's
The applause grows deeper
 and I start to drown
I cry ...I am not the king
  I am only the clown
so they laughed and laughed
 and then they bowed
they roared O you Majesty .
 what wit and how profound .
