Uneasy Lies The head

By Chinedum Ekwobi

A wearer of the crown
Is trained to frown
His monarchical gown.
Not for democratized town
People of renown
Sometimes go down
In assassinating ponds drown
The Dirtiest, coffee brown

Uneasy has to be the head
That is with power fed
Owner’s eyes, even in bed,
Ever watchful and red.

Uneasy lies the head,
To the others their head.
