Mirrors for Princes, –

Poetry & Prose August 2, 2017

Clappers enthroned the king of peasants,
counting the tithe of his windfall
Innkeepers made patristic conservatives, doubtful deities,
among them he who will soon regret not making the upstairs loft an additional bedroom as it would have later made for a great tourist attraction
Someone should have told him the value of a virgin birth,

such is the lottery of men with misprioritized principles

Paint by Pieter Bruegel the Elder Census at Bethlehem
