A Jester Holds Court

A Jester Holds Court

written by: Anne G



A jester holds court

Hark! Who can that be?

Usurper, pretender

rapscallion, buffoon.


Applauded by minions

of title and name

the jester performs

for all who will see.


Juggling agendas

of stately affairs

priorities, deadlines

deception and fraud.


The jester holds court

on a throne gilded gold

mimicking, miming

he who is not.
