Flowers, Condolences, Royalty

Flowers, Condolences, Royalty

There was a young lass, young Spencer,
She loved and was abandoned. She longed
For Closeness. Some said she just tried to
Climb, or sleep her way to Royalty, but
Let’s look at the facts. For all the gold and
Gowns, her real needs were love,
Closeness and a bond with a friend. Sadly,
Charles, and others like him, have been trained
To sire sires, then ignore the wife, ignore
the kids, ignore all but polo balls, bullocks,
Bogatas, and bombers, or in Charles’ case,
Goofy new chopper-landing navy planes.

William had better lasso Andrew, but it won’t
Matter, as soon as weeks from now. Soon
The public will dismiss Royalty as antiquated,
Soon the status quo will be tilted toward
Every man, the common man, the starving man.
Soon, and I mean really soon, the monied gentry
Will be in the fields again, joining their former
Serfs in an effort to eke out a living from an
Earth, forever scarred by the greed that has
Been allowed to go on too long. The biggest
Problem on earth, they would have you believe, is over-
Population. Wrong! Try “the unequal distribution of wealth.”
