A KING UNNOTICED AMONG US

Horia Pop (United Kingdom)

 

he looked like a bum

and walked like a king

 

he owned the streets

 

he had a cane for a sceptre

and a hat for a crown

he had a beard for wisdom

and the clothes of a prophet

 

his walk was like no one

 

and at a crossroad

I saw him wave at a BMW

to let it pass

 

A kingly gesture

no doubt

 

He was beyond that

he had time

he had centuries behind him

 

and maybe one last night ahead

About “A King Unnoticed Among Us”  “It is a poem on things sometime we witness and that stick with you and you don’t know why. It is a poem on a guy really peculiar and that lit the whole grey sky of London just by his sole presence one sullen afternoon.” (Pop)
Horia Pop.  I used to work as a librarian, as a an English teacher, and I’ve been a factotum for farms and factories while travelling. I still try to travel and meet as many diverse people and write then on it.
