Being in or out of favor

  Being
in or out
of favor
makes you
tremble
status
troubles
you
like
your own flesh
what
does
this
uncertainty
mean?
  favor
startles you
when
it comes
or goes.
status
brings
anxious
nerves,
then disgrace
without
a body
what
trouble
can I have?
someone
who thinks
his rank
is dangerous
as flesh
rules well
valuing
his own life
more than the country
he keeps
both calm
