RULERS AND SHOES
Covering their filthy feet
With different design of shoes
The shoes also
Having got to live under the ruler’s feet
Regard themselves fortunate.
They attain great pleasure
In being at their boss’ service
And being their blind followers
Intone the names of their masters.
In assurance of the courtier shoes
Don’t pay heed to anyone.
In the hands of abettor shoes
And slam kick
Upon tender dreams.
