My Past Lives

Once I was the son
Of a king
Then I died and had to
Come back again.
Next I was a scholar
Trying hard to
Fathom realities
Beyond the human scope.
In the next life I was
A sailor and Simbad's ally
Coursing the seven seas
Looking for gold.
Then I was a
Medicine man winning
Renown for myself and
Loyal clients too.
Once I imagined I was
Buddha's crony
Mystic guru and prophet.
Now I want to rule the entire
World in this life
Wielding a scepter
Above every head.
