Prince

Were those royal colours
your clothing of choice
because you were preordained
by Jehovah to rule
a kingdom of your own making?

Did you play your part
through pain and painkillers
because to stop would mean
failure you had no room for?

And did you wonder
when the tunes would stop
pouring from your fingers
like rain?
