The King's Nuts
 



His Excellency was busy in his counting room
They say he is a very wealthy moneyed man
One weakness he has is his fondness for nuts
When the porter cleaned, he found ten cans

There he sat with his throat quickly thickening
The milkiness of his skin was not a good sign
The poignancy of the moment was apparent
He would undergo surgery a bit before nine

Finished forenoon, two peanuts were removed
They were lodged in his swollen esophagus
Even though he'd known of his allergy to nuts
We should all remember this as a lesson to us

~ Moral ~

It doesn't matter how much money we have
It's how we choose to live our lives that count
If we have nary a concern for our health issues
Nothing but medical problems will surmount

~~~
