New Clothes of the Emperor


It is in elementary textbooks,
The mighty emperor's new clothes
are simply nothing but his own pride.
The tailors he has hired are heroes,
They have the nerve and wisdom
to teach all a lesson.
How sad that they've done nothing for days
while the emperor and his generals pretend or believe
that they see works be done ...
Innocent children speak of truth,
Sinful adults are blind to simple insults.
