Royal Wedding

In this world where democracy is coveted prize

where freedom and equality are fought for daily:

In this world, work stops, media shines its powerful light

not on the freedom fighters but on a royal wedding.

Ceremony, souvenirs, champagne

flow while I stand bemused

at the uselessness of it all.
