Hurt by his wife, Grace

King Robert has nothing more to brace;

He fell from grace to one Grace to grass

Just like a little feeble lass.

King Robert is now all but disgraced,

His legacy is all but deeply defaced,

He has shifted away from hero.

Now he is reading zero.

Will his void be easy to replace?

And in history doesn’t he have a place?

King Robert charisma and charm’s unchallengeable

His wit, strength and determination unquestionable

So, he remains a hero

One that simply drifted to zero

By refusing the spirit of Mandela-ism

And rather believing in totalitarianism.

Then there is this irony

This that of character-felony:

Same hands that built dictators,

Become the celebrated liberators.
