Thomas J. Dooley


A King

Is a ruler of man

A King

Is admired protector

A King

Is wise in his decisions

A King

Sits on a thrown place there by God

A King


A King



What is a King?


It is not children

Arguing over a legacy


It is not greed

A down payment on history


It is not a family name

A generation brings it to shame


It is not selling tickets

To a path paved by dog bites, water houses or brutal beatings


What a King really is

Someone who selflessly inspire peace

This we should never forget.
