CONQUERED KINGS

It is not all kings who rule
Some are put on many prestigious stools as many a fool
Used as crippling tools as they bend to work as bulls
While their pains are forced fenced with brick smiles around tear pools

II.
It is not all queens who are used
Many a supposed-users are sorely abused
In the darkness of their beds
And are worked to work into their queens’ reds

III.
It is not all princes who are skilled
Many are born wimps whose parents can never be fulfilled
But are forced to lead many a human capable
While their stupidities parade
On parks where eyes can see through the charade

IV.
Some princesses are warriors in their own rights
Conquering many frights
Charting ruling paths in their lights so bright
Shocking patriarchies with their might

V.
So sit straight your head before you judge
Work well your thoughts before you judge
Life is a shocker and destinies have their lockers
No gender, status, class pose as the only prestige hawkers

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
