With Kings

by Judy (Wishes)

With kings I've walked in castles,

Down cold, long halls

On hard, damp floors.

I've sat on velvet cushions

That could not cover

The discomfort of a throne.

I've heard the dialogues

That are a glory to our age,

When, schooled in conversation,

Princes speak with fluent grace.

Yet, I still know of other things,

Of village hovels visited by hunger,

Of ones not blessed by birth

To live within the castle walls

Or blessed with time to be so clever.

I know to judge the wealth,

The very worth, of any kingdom,

You must walk among the people

Least known, least blessed, least loved.
