Crowned

Save the date,
mark it down
for the days fly fast
when you wear the crown.

Place your bets,
put your money down,
wait your turn
while you wear that frown.

Pride comes before
you fall farther down,
your face painted
like a sideshow clown.

Save the date,
mark it down,
feel the weight
of that burdened crown.
