65. The death of a king

 

*

There once was an old king,

From a far away land he had come,

Chased away by his kin,

Many years before when the revolt happened.

 

They said he was a monster,

They said he had to pay with his life

For the sins of his father

And all those that had lived before

 

So his parents fled their land,

Taking the young child on a long journey

Across oceans and mountains,

Through forests and fields of barley.

 

They ran and ran and ran,

As fast as they could to escape their pursuers

But hey were caught up with

And only the boy managed to keep going.

 

He lived a long and full life,

Sometimes looking back towards the land

Where he had come from,

But never halting his march forward.
