Analysis of Court of King. Idiot

Court of King.Idiot, great, so great!
All craze and excessive zeal, so right!
When so subjects, come and call-
Slaps the king great on their cheeks,
Utter a word, then impose fine-
All to suffer, all, what all done,
If a word spelt, 'contempt of court'
If not told, then 'contempt so big'
Nobody, nobody, tell something-
All as done, by King so right,
Court of King.Idiot, great, so great!
All craze and excessive zeal,so right!

William John

I am born and brought up in Kerala state, in India. In Kerala, Thrissur city is my native place and now I am residing at Kadavoor village in Ernakulam district.I am a senior lawyer at The High Court of Kerala. Literary talents all dwelt in my blood from my very birth itself. From, while studying in the primary classes, I wrote stories, dramas and poems in Malayalam.While studying in high school classes I wrote stories and poems in English. Then it grew in me as an endless blessing craze. I do write in English as well. I do write stories, novels, dramas and verses. I have written more than twenty thousand poems in Malayalam, about twenty novels and more plays.In English, now I have completed more than seven hundred poems. I think, very soon that it will grow to at least a five thousand. I am so much pleased and thankful to those nice friends who go through my poems all over the world and shower the rain of horripilate congratulations. Yours,William John(Email: fan page : more…
