Disciple’s Folly

It’s Quadrille Monday again at the dVerse Poets Pub; time to create a 44-word poem.

This week, we’re asked to create a poem using the word “Crown” or some version of it.

Thanks to De Jackson for hosting and getting us started.

Disciple’s Folly

All crowns lose their luster,
tarnished by undue adulation.
Unmerited adoration is common.

Masses will gather on mountains
or under balconies; will submit,
craving leadership, enlightenment,
or even salvation, to no avail.

All tales told are a lie.
A crown is just another myth.
