Ruler

Order
In the shade of searing heat
The Nile yawning as it stretches past
Responsibility gilded into crown
Throne begs food, shelter, safety

Abundance purrs across land
Family flourishes by river bend
Secure sleeping on the chest of well laid plans
Cradled by fate’s lullaby

Praise/threats unhinged, unheard
Crippling duty
Can only be released by chaos
