King Midas' Antithetical Brother

King Midas’ Antithetical Brother
By Mark Lysgaard

If King Midas had a twin brother,
But everything he did was wrong,
Should we, could we replace the king
Who is inept as the day is long?

Wrong about everything he says
About policies domestic or foreign.
Who does this King really work for?
Why does our debt keep soarin’?

King Midas was stable and loved by everyone
And as the king he respected the law.
His benevolence gave to those with the least
His morality had little flaws.

King Midas could turn things to gold
With the touch of his fingers and wit.
Unlike his antithetical brother’s touch
That turned everything to waste.
