King And Jester

Who has the key
To understanding.
Who is the keeper
Of misunderstanding.

Who makes claim
To know everything.
Who is the fool
Of replying nothing.

Who is the king
In his courtly chamber.
Who might be subject.
Who is the jester
Of foolish entertaining.
Who may be subjecting.

Who is provoking.
Who is hurting.
Might it be a reflection
Into which I am looking?
