The Emperor

What does it mean

in this time of need

for the emperor to have no clothes?

It’s fallacy

not what it seems

his closet’s rather full.

And yet he struts

with all his stuff

hanging out for all to see.

The emperor claims

he has no clothes

in a time of desperate need.

Remind yourself

his closet’s full

although skin is what

we see.
