“Before We Were Kings”
by Leslie Noyes
Before we were kings, we slept half the day rising at noon for our breakfast.
Before we wore robes, we frolicked like fools behaving as if it would all last
We snuggled and snuffled, snorted and sang, trumpeting our joy to the masses
And no one chastised us lest we succumb to a crippling, pachyderm sadness.
Oh! It was roll, roll, tumble and flow until the grand day of our crowning
Now we sit tall, on thrones one and all solemnly judging and scowling.
