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.
