The Royals vs the poet’s realm


Of splendid thrones of gold
or treasures manifold


Of jewelled caskets
or lavish banquets


Of Emirs and rajahs
Of Sultan and Shahs


Of kings and queens
Of rulers and emperors


Of sparkling crowns
or flowing gowns


Of their subservient stewards and obedient pages
Of their stalwart squires and servile knaves


Of poor humble, docile minions
who tended to regal pavilions
And carried royal palanquins
Some real life harlequins


Of castles and palaces
of abounding gold and silver
in ostentatious regal splendour


The sidelined fanning maids in waiting
Yet to me only one thing worth noticing
The minstrels who came to sing
from afar for the queen and king



For I'd rather be a poetess for kings
so to my tunes swayed a kingdom
than I be the king of mere subjects
and be filled with regal boredom!


So I could join ranks of
troubadours
and sing for the king
some folklores.
