"The unexamined life is not worth living." ~Socrates


There once was a king, a fabulous king
Adored by all whom he saw
He was simple and enjoyed simple things
His subjects looked on in awe
It was so peaceful, he needed no law
It was so peaceful, he needed no law

And this king, this wonderful king
So pure in heart and mind
He was simple, and loved to sing
Regarded as nothing but kind
No one nicer could you find
No one nicer could you find

So this king, this three-year-old king
Though he might have been too small
Though he was simpler than the future kings
In his talent, he surpassed them all
Under adults his country would fall
Under adults his country would fall

Sometimes, less complexity is better. Never underestimate children.
