Poetic, prophetic, pathetic: Court Jester

Out of all imaginable afflictions,
Haunting creative minds,
I wonder,
Which is most tragic?
The artist lacking talent, but full of ambition ~
Or the squandered gift of one bereft of such motivation?
Poor is (s)he who indulge in the grandiose delusions,
Under which I have become a thrall.
Bereft of ambition and wanting of talent,
A whimsical jester,
Dancing to the lyre of inspiration ~
Like a puppet on strings,
Wielded by an inattentive muse.
Heavens no, we shan’t have any more of this nonsense,
In my court.
