A Glistening Tear

“Dry your tearful eyes, my lord:

Know you not to weep?

For tears are signs of weakness, Sire,

They mark you out as meek.”

 

To which the king glanced skyward

Smiling knowingly.

“They show humanity, compassion,

Which people need to see.

 

“For would you rather a king

 Not know his feelings?

Or to let them flow in public

As with all other things?”

 

A story with no morale

Is yet to be found.

So let that glist’ning tear flow now

And trickle to the ground.
