The jovial jester

The gentle
jovial jester
playfully pesters
the repugnant
palace molded
in malice .
Until it’s cold
callous king
tries to sing
and for once
in his
lackluster life
creep out of
his cryptic crevice
and leave all his towers
of tears behind .
As he ventures out
into this
time wrinkled world
in search of himself .

such throne cannot stand the taste of time hence is full of malice and distastefulness.

"Poetic license
the poets
the free will to
embroider a good tale
and deviate from the established rules of language"~Jackweb
