The Moat

I’m closing the bridge right now.
The moat your entry won’t allow.
My castle isn’t open to you.
I’ll go back to isolation too.

You don’t appreciate my work.
You treat a king like your clerk.
If only you knew my worth
you’d know how lowly is your birth.

This is my kingdom not yours.
You’re merely a guest, of course.
But if you think you ought to reign,
first go die in that lonely lane.
