What King for Me?

The word reached the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, removed his robe, covered himself with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. – Jonah 3:6

A king for a city
Sits in rent sackcloth and ash
Cut to the quick, crying
To allay the overturning crash.
What King for me
Would do the selfless same?
Would be sold and overturned
in humiliation and shame?
