...a gold leash. We don't care... We aren't caught up in your love affair. And we'll never be royals. It's just not in our blood, that kinda lux just ain't for us." ~Lorde, Royals.

I cycle down the road,
stare at the trailers
and mobile homes.

People walk about-
the kind that work for a living,

Nine-to-fives, two jobs,
maybe three,
just to get by that month.

My music blasts in my ears,
filling every thought with the images
of some famous persons' marble home.

They walk about-
the kind that have fun for a living.

Red carpets, two cars,
maybe three,
more money than brains.

Maybe I'd like it,
but most of my money...
would go to charity...
the BB&B...
Normal-people stuff.

The rest just isn't for me.
