The King and the Fool.

I visited a certain king
Who had a certain fool.

The king was gray with wisdom got
From forty years of school.

The fool was pink with nonsense
And could barely write his name

But he knew a lot of little songs
And sang them just the same.

The fool was gay. The king was not.
Now tell me if you can:

Which was perhaps the greater fool
And which, the wiser man?
