Ode To Tsar Nicholas


you lived blissfully in your palace
you were thought of as being callous
you weren’t aware of all the malice
were you?


he came a-walking down your royal street 
a peasant man on his holy feet
he never was very discreet
was he?


sorry to hear about your abdication 
it must have been such a humiliation 
you never got the right information 
did you?


you couldn’t count upon your extended family 
they acted like you had leprosy
I guess that destiny had to be
to be


three hundred years hanging by a thread
snipped away for the lure of red
then they made sure you were good and dead
didn’t they?
