The Ties of Pomegranates

It is plenty good

to sit on your high throne

and look down

and judge the little ants

scurrying in dirt


To eat the juice

of thousands of pomegranates

spitting out the pulpy pips                                      

served on silver platters.


But remember,

when you are forced

off the high throne

and are falling to the earth above,

the pomegranates won’t save you.

Their ties only stick to the throne,

so by their tie,

you serve the throne

as one of the ants below.
