The King
Graham P Andrew

My people love me dearly, but they try my patience.
I protect them and care for them, but they avoid paying what they owe me.
Those who I appoint take liberties as soon as they are out of my sight.
There are none better to put in their place.
Tax evasion and corruption cannot be tolerated.
I must make examples of some to keep the others in line.
