King for a Day~by Paul F. Lenzi



King for a Day


Image by pauklein

on a catamaran
where the waters are green
I acquired a tan
that attracted a queen

she so loved my shade
that she gave me a crown
then I started to fade
till I lost all my brown

and the last thing she said
as I knelt at the log
was “Remove his pale head!”
and the axe cut the fog
