A King and His Beauty

A King and His Beauty the audience stares King Kong shakes shackles, breaks free… chaos, people running away Kong’s mistress in crowd once free, he cannot find her… crowd is in frenzy the beauty nears Kong he picks her up in his palm… Empire building scaled planes appear in sky protecting Beauty, he fights… even beasts can love Kong falls to his death Beauty lives to love again… Irony defies *Entry for Tracie’s “Ku Ku Crazy” contest.
