The Wisdom of Kings

Dreams are the wisdom

       of Kings you see

that can bend the world

       to their likes and dislikes –

we are but servants of desire and need.

   

Corporation fostered fantasies

       we are ready to heed –

for them we will sacrifice,

       toil and fight.

Dreams are the wisdom of kings you see,

   

and they will make you think

       you too can be free.

Reveling in darkness, while

       never knowing the light,

we are but servants of desire and need

   

and of our nature they’ll take

       advantage and feed –

their own desires giving

       strength to their might.

Dreams are the wisdom of kings you see

   

and those kings will pretend to be

       like you and like me,

and we’ll wind their noose around

       our necks real tight –

we are but servants of desire and need.

   

But clinging to love

       the only truth that is pure

we can drop the bonds

       and revel in peace.

Dreams are the wisdom

       of Kings you see –

useless to those in search of the Queen.
