Eat Cakes. - Poem by Meena Somasundaram

Eat cakes if not you have bread
could make one cautiously tread
being that the inhibitions in a shed
has made the Queen come out with a bled
she being of a royal blood
could never realize the common thread
she comes with an alternative instead
being that of cakes all the more in fled
Queens relax and relish the delicacies all glad
not so with the commoner who struggles while being sad
a garish remark it seems all too bad
would not be made by her if she really had
one of being to work for a penny all too hard
for her pennies are small and need not be shared.
