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  


and sing for the king  

some folklores.
