Haiku – Jester

Fearing for his life

The fool entertained the king

Hoping for laughter

+

King sat silently

No smile upon his harsh face

The fool was sentenced

+

Off to the dungeon

The fool protested loudly

Drug away screaming

+

The fool smiled through pain

Lying in his harsh cold cell

Visitor approached

+

Unlocking the cage

The queen helped the fool escape

Lovers embracing

+
