King For One Day

A future king questions his plan

King For One Day

To be king for one day
To be looked upon as the public awaits
Decisions to be made
All to keep democracy in place.

A burden to carry
Subtle whispers to marry
Suggestive,
Without too much emphasis
On the government to tell lords and barons.

Will my name be remembered for something great?
Or maybe just seen to communicate.

A young king on the throne
With children listening and tasking
The wife participating
Offering content – while dismissing hearsay to all standing.

Maybe a day seems too long in the asking
A powerful card
That needs more planning.

We’ve got it easy
All we need is a bit more holidays
Time,
Is worth more to my working people
Than paying endless taxes.

To be king for one day
Is it worth the pay?
Would it be worth it
Just for one day?

My people would remember me…

As a man who set the world free

Or a man who let the public down.
