Captive to the Fool | A Poem by Roger Still

Notice how the king is entranced
By the noises of the jester
Though they are crude, he is in love
With the netherworld of life
Watching as his jester takes him
To the dingiest depths of depravity
Then scales onto heights of impropriety

When the time for bequeathing comes
The jester will walk away with jewels.
