King of Me

“King of Me,” Friend, Sept. 1996, 20

King of Me

I said to my feet, “Keep still!”

I said to my hands, “Just stay!”

I said to my all-over-everywhere-self,

“I’m in charge of you today!”

I’m ruler of my mouth,

And I’m the King of Me,

So when I tell me it’s reverence time,

I’m as quiet as can be!
