Perseus Rex

Perseus Rex
by jamh

As I daydreamed in class
I often wondered about the face
hung over the blackboard
above Ferdowsi's famous rhyme
on wisdom being power.

But power is a funny thing.
Never a mean to an end,
it permeates your core.
Accelerates your time
and forever fuels your hunger.

Kid yourselves not
we still have a king in the house
who makes whatever rules he likes
blending superstition and faith
into a mix of blood and slime
to weave the same crown of.

I want to partake in nothing.
Be free from another man's chain.
For once I want an empty frame
to fill with whatever I want,
something like a teenager
asking for a chance for love.

Kid yourselves not,
We still have a king in the house,
His crown is soft, made of black Karbaas,
He's full of flaws,
Rules with bloody claws,
With his holly plot,
The progress is on the pause.
