King in the Jester’s Court


A dull frustration sets in

Why not me instead of him

My genius overshadowed by that of a fool’s

I’m a King in a Jester’s court

Where it’s the Jester that rules

I’m a sailor on a ship

Where the captain’s a fool

Not on a ship of fools, but on a fool’s ship

Smooth sailing to insanity, the world’s shortest trip

But he’s the genius

A true creative genius

And while my ego stands trial

I’m in convenient denial

As the King in the Jester’s court

I hide my jealousy behind a plastic smile

As the King in the Jester’s court

I’m only kidding myself; it’s been me all the while

I am the Jester in the King’s court

Finding it difficult to accept in style
