If I Were a Royal by leighmf on the common behavior of what is called royals

If I were a Royal the world would be right.
But as it stands now
there's no peace in sight.
And so was it ever with Kings and their things
while working folk sleep in beds without springs.
Yet to sleep thusly, they still pay the Kings.

Who say they are Royal live borderline madly,
their lips are so thin
I can't see them, sadly.
Whizzing by costumed for parties so garish,
in smart little cars polluting the parish,
not one starving mother or child they cherish.

How is it that they with pudding for brains
are getting away with such loot?
Why do we all not have capital gains?
If I were a Royal, the whole world would play, "You be Kate, I'll be Pippa."
Every man, woman, child would have lovely behinds framed by Dior with a zippa.
And her Majesty must admit from the Palace, all her kin are some sort of strippa.
