In the middle of the road
Royalty parading themselves
As benefactors of luxury--
Waving hands, wanding stature,
Discretely fingering human conditions,
Globalizing a service industry.
Along the curbside
Onlookers subjecting themselves
As beneficiaries of goodies--
Awaiting hands, wanting status,
Quickly palming the humane confections,
Localizing a sense of community.
Free willing trend-setting
Sovereignty following the lifestyle--
The power plays master
Piecing theatrics, surrogate scenarios
Providing magic to distribute the aesthetic--
Corralling momentum, stabilizing the stampede:
The bodies governing the land;
The living stock to bond.
