No Change of King Makes Any Difference: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


What is the difference who's sitting on the throne

one king or another, results are always the same

because you can only live the life that's your own

not life of a nation like being a part of a Big Game.

There have been homeless and those super rich

no matter who ever got elected to be the king

inspiring for that old saying "Life is a bitch"

or for seeing it as one delightful thing.

This fascination with leadership and power

at best serving as pastime for a boring day

though able to make sweetness of life sour

turning blue skies into many shades of gray.

National prosperity, not a blanket covering all

and no economy figures have you in sight

some march through life, others crawl

and no laws are for everyone right.

As the next king happens to come around

you're bound to hear the same social noise

giving some more ranting a justified ground

while king will keep ruling with a usual poise.

Enjoy lavish show of his coronation

and have fun ranting against his foes

keep living the life of your whole nation

neglecting real issues in front of your nose.

That's the recipe for life for so many folks

who got their identity lost in national mass

while pursuing one or another popular hoax

leaving out of a focus their own precious ass.
