  The Play
(Act Two)

Love and laughter
Turn to tragedy
The fact has come to pass
The Jester must leave the Queen

He must now
Turn his thoughts
And his loyalties
Back to the original kingdom

The kingdom where this Queen
Selfishly chose to trespass
Failing to consider the lives
Of the Innocent subjects involved

Her love of the Jester will always remain
It is that love that allows her to bow out graciously
To walk quietly off the stage
And so ends the play
