Crown Of Thorns

Cloning the emperor, assuming the throne knighted impostor, unregally grown With hell for a kingdom, his scepter ignites flames burning memory, a mirror’s delight The queen held for ransom, a prince in his bed jester on fire, all subjects rebled A rival approaches, the bishop a swan his guillotine royal —beheaded in song (Beaupre: November, 2021)
