Real Richness

Silly little castles
Stop screaming into black
No one needs you now
Even kings have given crowns back
Your kingdom has stretched
To fairy tale heights
While the dragon's burning the common's wealth
And no one can find the timid knights
It was the greed of the people
To have like the king
Silly little people
Your ruler never really had a thing
He owned all of you
And as you scrambled to give
In his fight to have more
He never even lived
There is but one
That ended up with it all
The king's jester kept every smile
The large and the small
For a fool pays for laughter
In hopes his heart will sing
Yet, it is the receiver of the smile
Who is richer than any king
