how comfortable is your wooden throne
has it not grown tired of your heavy weight,
has not your ego caused the seat to break
has not your pointed finger
yet turned the other way
why do you sit so high above
in the hidden shadows of your
pompous good
have you not yet
found discomfort in
your rulings
have you not yet
abandoned your seat for
the floor – I pray
if you leave, hardship
does not befall you
in the body or the soul
lest you make the same mistakes
of all those you condemned before.
