A Commoner

user img

She married a commoner and
was therefore not invited to
to hunt and
terrorize little foxes,
nor attend imperialist
capitalist war meetings,
nor sit while servants paid
slave wages tired themselves
cleaning up after her.
She was not taught to
treat marital fidelity
as a middle class stupidity,
nor to live idly with others of
the ‘aristocracy’. She was
kept from stalking
innocent deer in the woods,
and from participating in black
magic covens. She did not
participate in primogeniture
in which the eldest son
takes all, causing friction
for generations.
