Coming To Power
Crown the king with thorns.
Drape the queen in clear plastic, parade her into the courtyard.
Give the jester new cue cards, hoosier-stick the sad page.
Call an emergency meeting of war lords, put the green knight in the saddle.
Give fair warning to the infidel, then slash burn and plunder.
Keep the cross polished and your sword sharp.
In such ways great men come to power.
