I SHALL DINE WITH KINGS

I shall eat with kings
I shall dine with lords
I shall; I truly shall
I alone and nobody else
I shall eat with kings
I shall dine with lords

Today I roam in this void and formless world
In this empty life
Where I hear the echoes of my groaning stomach
I who cries yet sheds no tear
I whose tear-glands burst out of agony
I whose flesh and bones have been eaten away
By life’s brutal spears
I shall eat with kings

Mark my words, world
I who stays out in cold
I shall sleep in a king-sized bed
I who feeds on garbage
I shall feed on the sweetest cabbage
I shall dine with kings

I whose pants are torn;
Shall put on a purple gown
A ring and diadem;
I who lives in shame
I who lacks a name; shall rise to fame
I alone and nobody else
I shall eat with kings
I shall dine with lords
