and princes

 

 
the king is the authority
but he must have an heir
to sit upon the throne
the day his father isn't there
.
the child, full of security
the father, filled with fright
the king, plagued by insomnia
the prince sleeps through the night
.
the ruler of a country
has a power, absolute
but he must plant his seed
so that a new tree can take root
.
the youth is gifted lullabies
the elder, left with screams
the king has horrid nightmares
while the prince has splendid dreams
.
it's good to wear the crown
but soon the weight of it will bend
and when the prince becomes the king
his days of peace will end
.
