Kingdom of fools

A. K. Ramanujan 1929 (Mysore)

Kingdom of Foolish Folly

Plese write poem on kingdom of fools

In the realm of jesters and clowns, behold,
Lies a kingdom of fools, both young and old.
Where reason and wisdom are often ignored,
And laughter and folly are forever adored.

Oh, the Kingdom of Fools, a peculiar sight,
Where intellect falters in the dim candlelight.
Here, jesters dance with glee, their antics profound,
While the wise shake their heads, dismayed and astound.

In this realm, folly reigns with a mighty roar,
As kings and queens wear crowns they do not adore.
They rule with ignorance, their minds unbound,
Leading their subjects astray, round and round.

The courtiers speak in riddles and jest,
Their words like feathers, light-hearted and blessed.
They jest and they mock, without any care,
Blissfully unaware of the world's despair.

But beyond the facade of jest and delight,
Lies a deeper truth, hidden from sight.
For in the Kingdom of Fools, wisdom awaits,
Patiently yearning to unlock its own gates.

For fools are not all that they seem,
Behind the laughter, lies a dormant dream.
A dream of understanding, of knowledge untold,
A longing for wisdom, waiting to unfold.

So let us not mock this whimsical realm,
For even in folly, lessons overwhelm.
In the Kingdom of Fools, there's room for growth,
Where ignorance and wisdom may interlope.

For sometimes, in laughter, we find our way,
To see the world clearer, in a different display.
And in the end, perhaps we're all fools too,
Navigating life's maze, discovering what's true.

So raise your glass to the Kingdom of Fools,
Where laughter and wisdom dance in playful rules.
For in the realm of jesters and clowns, we find,
A glimpse of our own foolishness, intertwined.
