The Old Man


Where you land/


An old man out there

 lives in despair 

 a king so long 

 committed actions wrong.

 

A rigid man without respite

fell a prey to a spite

knowing or unknowing right 

 now wallows in ignominy bright.

 

Thrown he now out of his fiefdom

 has become so inactive and dumb

looks he a puppet with a drum

 comical character of his erstwhile kingdom.

 

Childless he is,  this  wealthy man

adopted  a son from his own clan

 who hatched out a  clever plan

that entrapped the old man.

 

KnowsComic_Book_Guy_at_the_hospital not how to come out 

 the old lion seems worn out 

Would he regain his strength?-a doubt

worry his kin all throughout
