The queen carries no purse
not the king packs a wallet
morning comes their words
don’t freeze to mouth’s roof

No one ever asks to see their
IDs they do not live alone yet
do not sleep together either
they don’t own an automobile

No tweet feed no clock tells
tick-tock up and down halls
around the castle walls one
hears swishes but little talk

No dust accumulates no litter
allowed in the vast library no
television no stereo system
for fun they sit at the grand

piano and play God Save the
Queen and King from dust
and misery from questions
answers and such shilly-shally
