Royal Blood

Royal blood

“Do you have royal blood”?
Question screams,
Is your ancestry good enough,
For surely we are all Kings and Queens,
If we go back far enough, or so it seems,
But not I.

“Do you have royal blood”?
My facebook page, side bar rages,
You must have, in past ages,
On Twitter, question flitters,
I really could be bitter,
For no, not I.

“Do you have Royal blood”?
No but I have my health,
A family history of owning wealth,
Experience of God in person,
I don’t need royal blood,
No, Not I.

@Andrew Carnegie, socially mediated, Wiltshire, January 5th 2017.

    It's due to the way the mind can work - your user name came over as sounding red Indian, a cursory glance at your picnic Black and White cemented - no offence meant - just shows how far out assumption can be when we miss the detail

    Don't get me started on the royals, I am a fellow Brit.. However, not a supporter of the royal family.. Enjoyed your take on this poem.. The last stanza, could also possibly mean (blue) blood.. Clever I think..

    Thank you although you now have me intrigued, I assumed wrongly that you were based in the far American North, possibly from the indigenous population - slightly missed the mark!
