Light Verse For Wednesday

What with all the financial, geo-political, environmental, and governmetnal gloom in the atmosphere, I thought perhaps some lighter verse might be in order.

In the Mind's Court

His majesty, the Ego
has fallen out of bed.
His queen, Narcissa,
tripped over his hard head.

Reality, a rowdy
parliament of facts
is pounding on the palace door,
denouncing royal acts.

Humility, a combination
of the wizard and the fool,
gazes at the crisis, says,
"Everybody--be cool."
