A king looked at me
I was at play.
His eyes said no way.
I got up. He slapped me down.
His eyes said how can you stand
playing, then stand to me as a man?
I got up to walk.
He slapped me down. How can you
move without knowing where your going?
I tried to look him straight in the eyes.
He slapped me down.
His eyes said, how can you see without
knowing what your looking for?
I started to answer.
He slapped me down.How can you
talk without knowing the right words?
how can you eat without feeding someone else?
The king,s eyes looked at and said
how can you play with the world this way?
Aking looked at me.
but i did not see.
I was way to busy.
