366 Poems: June 27th, 2016

Kings and Queens

We all want to be

the next entrepreneurs.

We all want to be

our country’s next best thing.

We all want to crawl our way

out of the sewers,

wipe off our red robes,

and take our place as kings.

But kings will need subjects

and queens will need maids.

Diamonds will need miners

to fill up the vault.

And after the kingdom

is tactically laid…

why do we look down

and say that it’s their fault?
