The royals versus 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 obeisantly carried royal palanquins  

Oh and some were 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.
