The Crown

If you were able

Would you go for it?

Become a member

Of lauded gentry

And symbol of power?

How far would you go

How high a climb

Would it take to crest that tower?

I fear the crown

For though it shines golden

It is made of thorn and wire.

Such a crown

Would you take such a crown

If you knew how it would change you?

If it warped you

Changed and deformed you

Made you… a monster?
