Make sense of this poem.

I was angry at the airport yesterday and I decided to get on my poetry side (I’m not a poet) and this came into my head, I didn’t have any writing material but I assure you that they lied when they said the faintest handwriting is better than the sharpest memory, I want y’all to be the judge of this poem and please also drop your own beautiful lines in the comment box. Knock yourselves out and ENJOY.

He was once a prince

Nothing he did not have

The rogues came and made him servile

And now he owes his life to them.


He waits only on his master’s instruction

The rubrics he must do with no err

They say to err is human and to forgive his divine

But his master is no saint.


He goes about with a nude torso

His master’s wife is tempted

She approaches him with all the glee in this world

She must be portiphar’s wife but he is no Joseph.


He is called out to go for war

While his master lounges in the back

This is no chess game

But he is a pawn in this world.


He claims to be human

But we scorn him like an animal

We had all be judged before the Lord

Then every man will know his class.


He waits for a day so far and precious

When light will pierce through his cave again

He knows nothing lasts forever

And we will all be back in the dark.


Believe not what you have read

For all is fictional although it might be true

Remember this one thing I beg you

I am the narrator and he is the thespian.
