What can

Four kings carry

Such care

Such respect

Four king carry a case

It’s weight does not

Bow them

Some would say

The case carries them.

The four kings who walk at the same pace.

Each has it’s crown

If you’d ask them

They would tell

“I have no kingdom

I have no subjects”

Why, some would find it odd

“I can’t possess nothing

Nothing can possess me

I am my Brothers and Sisters

I am this Case

This Case is within me

It is me”

And some will start

Slowly understanding them

Seeing them

Feeling them

Knowing they are

Brothers and sisters

Of them too

A part of the Case they carry.

They will want to call them

By their name

Who are you, mighty  kings and queens

They will ask!

At one voice they will reply:

“Earth, Wind, Water, Fire

We protect Gaia

And Gaia protects us

We are one and the same

We are you

And you are us

I can’t possess nothing

Nothing can possess me.”

And so, through the ages

Four kings carry a case…
