There’s a stool in the my room
I call it throne.

There’s a boy on the throne
I call him man.

There’s a hat on the man
I call it crown.

There’s a boy on the seat
in the middle of my room
A hat on his head
uneasy it sits on his head,

He wraps failure
in purple smiles
He love toys
Most of them, cars.

There’s a king in my countryside
I call him clown.
