Here's a chant/song for Gaza. To be done as a call and response with the caller giving the line and the chorus echoing it back. To a yomping rhythm

My original letter
Aside from the poem for the new "king", I see it is almost a year since I last posted here. Many has been the time whilst out and about on my doings that I started to compose in my head some comment of a topic of the day, but somehow I never got round to writing them done. Life intervened and things moved on. Even writing in my head can be quite cathartic though.
What is a King?
So What IS a King?
What makes a king?
What makes a king real?
What does she do?
How does she live?
Does a king have a palace? One that is bigger than mine?
With servants to dress him, and chefs for his food.
Does she sit on a throne encrusted with jewels,
Raised up on dais with symbols of old?
Was his mother a king, and her father before her?
A dynasty born in trouble and strife.
A throne that was stolen by invasion and war,
Or simply invited to preserve an elite.
Does he care for the people, and when did we choose him?
To father our nation and be closer to god?
Do we make a divide between royal and common?
Is this how we tell what it is to be king?
No. That is not kingship. Not for my world.
A true king has nothing, he gives all he gets.
He provides us with succour for body and mind.
Her throne is a tree, his sceptre a flower.
He stewards the realm, and all life that is lived here.
He enables all people to flourish and thrive.
Her power is immense, but her touch it is light.
She heals and she nurtures, and pays us with love.
She is king for a season, but he's one of us.
For we are the people who consent to her kingship.
A debt that has to be royally repaid.
The people empowered live lives that are free.
So NO to hereditary, and NO to your power trip.
If I did not choose you, you can't be my king.
Let royalty wither,
let courtiers fall,
let palaces crumble and old kings be no more.
Arise the republic with fair shares for all.
