The Youngest King

Jack was not always the brightest boy,
For one day he discovered a bow, a fun toy.
He shot the blacksmith, baker and trader.
And all the while, called himself an invader.
He climbed the gate, to the palace grounds.
And shot off his bow all around.
There were arrows in walls and people too.
And not an idea as to what they should do.
So he continued his rampage of frivolous .
He then made a bad shot, his greatest error.
A grunt, and a thud, as the king hit the ground.
And the boy’s newest toy was the king’s very crown.
And it was from that day that Jack led the kingdom, down, down, down.
