The Alley King

Oh great alley king 
You are worshipped and adored 
All are jealous of your cardboard box 
Where all your belongings are stored 
Oh how I wish to be you 
The ruler of the alley 
To push the coveted shopping cart 
Collecting cans all through the valley 
Your tarp has minimal holes 
And your trenchcoat looks like new 
But I heard you shaved the royal beard 
Can this possibly be true? 
It is a sign of your regal position 
Far above the alley peasants 
By any means you must grow it back 
And reestablish your superior presence 
Until the day you abdicate the throne 
We will all just stare in awe 
At the jobless scruffy alley king 
The best we ever saw
