King I was

Had been to an astrologer
To know about my future
But he got hooked up on my past

King I was, he said with reverence
Reveled in all materialistic pleasures 
Have enjoyed life to fullest

I reflected awhile 
Yeah, have no temporal cravings 
Feel no sense of deprivation

I gave a consenting nod 
He added, I was known for justice 
Subject hailed impartiality

I reflected awhile 
Yeah, am living by hardcore honesty
Have never indulged in manipulation

I gave a consenting nod 
He went on, said I was good leader 
Subject appreciated decisions

I reflected awhile 
Yeah, am at top executive position
Am known for judicious approach
I gave a consenting nod 
He went on, said I was spiritual 
Respected divine Values   

I reflected awhile 
Yeah, mysticism fascinates me
Working on mind-body-soul quest

I gave consenting nod
Forgot questions on future
Felt no need to know future  

Thought foundation is great 
Why worry about superstructure
Signed off as a King, astrologer saluting 

(c) Hitendra Mehta
From : India. English not primary language
The prediction of past life is real. Have made the narration dramatic for poetic effect.

    Hi Hitendra, congratulations on a well-deserved win! This is such a clever powerful write that I enjoyed reading it immensely. Even though English is not your first language, you expressed yourself excellently! Pandita.
