King or Coral

King or Coral,
The great vessel
Or 6-feet under.
The blind boy,
Of kings and fair maids;
Inheritance of high or low.
With friend in hand
A snake they see
In the crossroads.
Red touch black,
Black touch yellow.
But the blind can not see.
Friend of Jack
Or knife in back?
Fog shadowing the light.
Kill a fellow
Or calm and mellow?
The vines tighten and tangle.
Approaching is futile
For only the blind
Troubles himself.
