Fall of a Lion

Great lion who once ruled the land, you are a serf to your lord. Gone is your kingdom where you reigned. You now serve new masters these days. You fell from your once proud throne. Your home is now humble and plain. Among those who serve, you’re not alone.

Robert I went and checked and yours is the only one listed here under the form. So I guess the answer is no one else has posted one here on this site. Love, Carol

I enjoyed reading your amazing poetry this morning Robert. This week has flown by for me. I hope you enjoy your weekend and find the inspiration to write some more during this time. To answer your question I do believe I have seen the form Kwansaba presented here once before but not sure of the poet or when. Love, Carol
