This is a poem about a wise fool. (I know. I know) (Oxymoron right?)
He was the fool of the land
He kept the king in stitches
He was always getting out of hand
He was often to big for his breeches!
One day a riddle was told
The king he knew it not
The fool finally got it unrolled
What a promotion he got!
He was no longer the fool of the land
He still kept the king in stitches
Now he was the king's right hand
Way too big for his breeches!
Here a lesson is set forth
Even a fool has worth!
