A King Amongst Peasants

The pageantry of peasantry,
of which I do belong.
The irony of luxury,
of royalty once enthroned.
Indoor plumbing, conditioned air,
electronic miracles make me blessed.
Beyond the dreams of kings and queens,
are the comforts I possess.
In a land of plenty,
were we all have so much more.
Compared to my neighbors,
I’m considered poor.
