Birthright

Once upon a time
there was an
average looking princess
who lived ⅔ of the way
to the top of the
tallest tower

who became accustomed
to the fact that she was
not the oldest
not the wisest
not the prettiest

not what she was
expected to be

which is sort of
laughable really
when you think
hard on it because

what could you expect
from a princess who
didn’t ask for this
and wouldn’t have

even if she was
given a choice
in the first place

and why wasn’t she
you may wonder

but princesses
are born that way
already in
their towers
with chains around
their ankles
and no way out.

Even the ones
who are average looking
and only live
⅔ of the way up.
