The king and Me

The King and Me. 
The king of Norway, doesn´t feel well today
his crown is heavy and since he went bald 
the diamond crusted crown leaves marks on 
his head. They made a mistake at the laundry 
when cleaning his red ermine coat the colour 
faded and it doesn´t fit around his waist.  
But he has to go on the balcony and wave to 
the people, later dine with ambassadors,
dignitaries and famous entertainers.
He has to be careful so the sleeves of his coat 
that is wide, don't dip into the soup.
Worst of all when the rest drink fine wine he 
has to drink water as he has a liver complaint… 
What is he going to talk about?  
The queen can go on about art and the latest 
trend in shoes, her mind doesn´t wander off; 
stay focused, she say don´t go on about sailing. 
The king sighs, yes it´s hard to be a monarch.
