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
