To be

A golden lid on porcelain throne. This toilet is used as a symbolic representation of the madness of kings in this poem

This rusted throne of kings, this gilded smile,
This divine right of blood, this gift of sight,
This better race of man, madness defiles
This luscious home of dreams, this earthly plight,
This inherited form, this gift of life,
This other choice of men, madness defines.
