In a Castle On A Hill

In a castle on a hill, Sat a king upon a throne, Who thought life was dull and still, Because he was alone- He summoned castle criers, To find a bride to be, They canvassed all his shire, And found suitable were three- The first was very pretty, Marked vanity was her want, The king felt it a pity- Only looks she liked to flaunt- The second yearned for power, Her heart was full of greed, Demanding things each hour- Of love she had no need- The third was quite possessive, Each friend of his she shun, The king found her obsessive, And knew she not the one. In a castle on a hill, Sat a king upon a throne, A ruler of free will, He chose to be alone! Moral of the story: Better off alone than with one who doesn't love you! written for Castle On A Hill contest

Wow!!! I love those insightful verses!!! It's worrying though, that these days many people are being forced by "circumstances" to be single..... :-(
