Demoted

When did I demote
You to a duke? It's been years . . . 
Since I called you King!

For the Poetry Potluck at Jingle Poetry (kings, queens & warriors prompt)!

Gee..that was a tight one, Christine!
At some point or the other, I think we have done this ourselves... with or without realizing! Ouch!
I hope it served "him" right though!

Nice Haiku! Glad you shared it at poetry potluck! It was perfect!
