I Want to Be the King

For I could never be king
Though I stepped out of the shadows
Of those, who faced the sun straight
The spread of that shadow always enveloped me
And even if I showed my face
I could never be king.

For I could never be king
Not then, not now
A friend of the king perhaps
Or even next in line
But I wasn’t even a kingmaker,
I could never be king.

For I could never be king
And I know I never will be
I will kick your throne, and
Poke your crown
And spit in your wake, for
I could never be king.

For I could never be king
I detest your kingship
I see myself in you
But you are not me
There’s a hollow deep within, because,
I could never be king.

I will never be a king
And I wish you weren’t either, only because
I could never be king.
