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
