The News Paper Read

Morning brew, dressed would the monarch be 
Cups of tea,  and  the news to be read 
As the king on chess games, work games 
He reads the news paper to start with routine  

To be moved, on event of reaction 
The news does read, a portrait of a man 
Printed on pages, what stories he hold, I wonder

I wonder, what stories the horoscope pages tell, to ponder 
Would it be to do with love, fortune, or a stranger's bequest, I wonder 
He reads, this fortune tellers inscriptions, to know, his luck 

I wonder, will the monarch have to abdicate his thrown   
On default of mortgage repayment, be made homeless  
I wonder how the papers would read 

What of the weather, the weathers play   
Would nature choose to smile on the day  
I wonder, what the weather report would say 

And for the sports, how did we do 
Would the king, jubilate and wear his colours
Or seat frustrated, saying 
"why did the manger not buy more players"

Cups of tea, or coffee for your like
As preferred , by the monarch, for his like  
I wonder how the news papers read

  4. I wonder, will the king have to abdicate his thrown
    On default of mortgage repayment , be made homeless

    Aye, there's the rub!

  5. Such an interesting ending and yes it would be fun to see how the newspapers did read

  6. I love it, the wonder and the peek into someone's life. We really don't know them, only what is reported~ Well Done

  8. Very creative approach to the prompt. Reading this, we can find ourselves wondering how the newspapers will read for us too.

  9. I enjoyed the metaphor of the newspaper as reading one's fortune. Many forecast and analyze about the future but there are many unknown factors.

  10. It would be even more interesting if he could read tomorrow's newspaper - which, ina way, he is attempting to do. I very thought-provoking post!
