The prince

(For my son)

The prince reached out
From the warmth of his castle
And surveyed the world
Grasping the air with his fingertips

We are but supporting players
In this, his starring role,
The world has shifted
Drums beat to his heartbeat
His desires are all that matters now

I held him
Hands quivering
And knew
Nothing else matters
The stars I shall bend at his will
The moon I shall pull closer for his pleasure
The heavens I shall inflate
The earth I shall move, shift, mold just to see him smile

The prince has arrived
And the king has abdicated

All hail the prince
