Paper Crown – Written Tuesday 21st July 2020 (Aged 45)

Paper Crown

one day
you could have your own
side office
and with it, a paper crown
all this land
and these gardens
but only if you stand tall enough
and if only you build,
reinforced towers
then you too,
can be absolutely drunk on power
one day
you could have you own
side office
and with it, a paper crown
your star status
more easily found
you can be the latest
false prophet
in a herd of faceless many
sup from the cups
that will always run empty
one day,
when they increase your salary
just by a few pounds
you too can experience false coronation
and wear a paper crown




James Garratt – Monday 20th July 2020
