The locusts, it is known, have no king
Cats, however, have one, and also
A prince-in-waiting, a regent,
A power behind the throne,
A power beside the throne,
A power beneath the throne,
Three pretenders, a shadow cabinet
And an Empress Dowager.

It is hard for an ambitious locust
No king to disobey; no god
Whose existence he denies.
