Inspired by What Do You See – 5/14/19

 

All the steps I take
for your comfort
I do without complaint.

You deserve my love
and attention,
you shall not have to wait.

May my efforts sustain you
and this commitment
be your protection.

I’ll keep you from harm,
ensuring your growth.
And I’ll rise to meet you.

Inspired by BrewNSpew – Word of the Week – 5/13/19

Hear ye! Hear ye!
The latest aristocrat has arrived!

Born to a noble station, this lad
will want for nothing except
maybe a little less fame.

All births are precious,
though royalty gets international praise
for squeezing another out.

Paparazzi delights
in another grand subject
added to the elite lineage.

The hoi polloi froth
with the news of this birth.
More gossip to be had about the royal icons.

All this attention
for something women have been
doing since the beginning of time.

This latest effort of reproduction exalted
leaving the average woman wondering,
“where’s my publicity?”
