A king’s son he was
And a king himself became,
With no more qualifications
The country’s crown now wears
On his empty head, 
Without shame!

    Great humor that you have presented in this one..I am sure that many have ruled from time to time who did not have what it takes to rule a people..There have been some great rulers in history both male and female..Someday though the greatest ruler ever will reign on this earth and it will be an honor to be his subject..Thanks for the visit to my page..Sara

    Very profound, Demetrios. Inherited crowns are often found on "empty" heads. Quite a thought-provoking poem. (You look very handsome in your photo.) Best wishes, Carolyn

    Oh, my dear poet...this is true of many. Royalty goes by lineage and not by wisdom. What a superb write. Kalimera....
