The walls of my castle

peasants crawl within
the walls of my castle
they don’t know
that i watch them
they don’t know
anything at all

their garments
lack all color
their bare eyes
lack all color

but the true sad folk
sit around my dinner table
the true sad folk
know even less than the poor

only those who
walk with hunched backs
only those who
have absolutely nothing at all

have the dream of one day
shouting

“The king is dead!”
