A Year of Poems – Day 362

A kingdom is but many homes
gathered into one.

If the kingdom is among us
Our home must be there too.

Like scattered chicks returning
Or sheep long gone astray.

A king is but a parent
Who love and is loved by all.

If the kingdom is among us
Our king must be there too,

Like the hen whose wings enfold us
If we allow them to.

You could say that a kingdom
Is a political device,

And a king is just a tyrant
Who decided to play nice,

But my kingdom is full of chickens
And its ruler is a hen.

And while it might sound strange to some,
It sounds like home to me.
