A Prince of Life—A Prince of Death,
  two courts for him to flee

One horse disappears under a ransomed
  —a drawbridge now unseen

Eyes close tight and turn within,
  all royalty disowned

As the King calls once and the Queen
  calls twice,
  —the Jester on the throne

(Villanova Pennsylvania: December, 2016)
