The story of a petulant child

Photo by the author with too much time on her hands. Hair donated by a little white dog and colored with a marker

Alone at night
In his gilded palace
He rages against the injustice
Of those who would mock him

Bloviating loudly
Spittle foaming on his lips
He stomps his feet in protest
As his tiny thumbs

Tweet angrily into the dawn
