Eating Cake

The proud princess of New Denny. Supposed she was superior to many. She mocked their low station Said they disgraced the nation. 'Tis no mystery why she died at 20.

Thank you, Casarah. It's plain and simple, but—as you suggest—has a historical antecedent. I appreciate your kindness in taking time to comment.

Thank you, Jan. I'm quite certain a 5th grader could have written it, but I thought the "cake" reference gave it some validity. * * * It's kind of you to ask about my health. I'm an old man (my photo is a fraud) . . . at the age in which you hurt in places you didn't know you had. But, no complaints; just gratitude for the years I've had.
