King Al Reflects

King Al Reflects

'Does come to me remorse this day

As sit I now with flask of ale;

My thoughts fly back to yesterday

I ask myself 'did I not fail?'

I fought with he who harmed my wife

Who poisoned her left her to die;

And in return I took his life

So now I sit and wonder why

I feel this guilt doth torture me

The blood still stains these hands of mine;

To take a life this ought to be

In hands of God must be divine;

Would that my conscience be becalmed

And leave my memories unharmed.'

May a calming hand find your brow sire. You did what was needed, as a good king should.

You would have made a wonderful king. Your poetry becomes better and better, if that is at all possible.

You are truly noble.  These are things you should think about.  Remember that David had Bathsheba's husband sent into the front lines of the army -- so he would be killed during battle -- far more of a crime than yours -- since the victim was innocent.  You felt as any man would feel -- and in a way you did the guy a favor:  this is better than rotting in the dungeon the rest of his life.  You will get over your guilt -- this is life, Sire.  --Sir David, Lord Chamberlain

Dear King:  you did what needed to be done and your Kingdom is proud of you.  Rest assured, Dear Sire, YOU are respected and our Leader.
