four kings met up for lunch one day

they wined and dined and laughed
they traded regal secrets
and the wisdom of their craft
 
the first king said i rule by force
with club and whip and pain
there must not be a weakest link
when fashioning your chain
 
the second said i rule by love
with heart and soul and mind
there cannot be pure unity
if one is left behind
 
the third king said i rule by wealth
with diamonds, gold and jewels
to have a strong economy
provides the basic tools
 
the fourth king said i rule by health
with spades we tend the earth
for crops supply the sustenance
which bring the utmost worth
 
four kings met up for lunch one day
opinions numbered four
they bade each other fond farewells
then shuffled off once more
