the king

June 2nd, 2023 · No Comments

in the land of the blind i had one eye
and i was the king

more than the king i was the god
i could take whatever and whoever i wanted
all the gold
any young virgin

bored with this i traveled to the land of those who have two eyes
sometimes a third
and some even four

they could see what i could not
they could perceive depth and see within

their servants all were one-eyed men

there is no way for me to return to my kingdom
i serve others now, and no longer know the blind
