The Wooden King

Image Courtesy:

Crown of moss upon an oaken head,

Streaks of starlight woven in a thread.

Darkness engulfs his city of thieves,

Soon he too shall bear blood red leaves.

Like an age old elm tree, roots he shall sprout,

Turned into a mighty tree preserved even from drought.

The Wooden King shall pay for his ghastly sins,

For in the end Karma always wins.
