Poem: Exile

(Originally posted on Facebook in December 2007 in a slightly altered form)

My life in exile
in the years since
my ignominious abdication
have been, to say the least

I've kept silent
holding no court
seeking no counsel
and raising no army

cloistered and quite
until our chance encounter
reminded me
of what I once had
and callously
cast aside
