Simplelot

By Dahni © 2011

Nothing regal
Nothing uncommon
No deeds of fiction’s plot, but
Simplelot

 

Nothing royal
Nor extraordinary
No permanent stain that time has blot, but
Simplelot

 

Not the legends
Not a child’s castle from common sandlot
Nor passed down through the ages, but
Simplelot

 

No knights or ladies in waiting
No royal pedigree
Not all the fame that wealth has got, but
Simplelot

 

Nothing heroic
Nor penned in the writs of bards
Not the fruits for fate to allot, but
Simplelot

 

Not the form of brain and brawn
Nor the passion unfurled
No, no such person as Lancelot, but
Simplelot

 

Just most of the living
And most of the crying –
The bleeding, paying, giving
And dying
Not the myth of Camelot, but
Simplelot

 

The order and balance
The meaning and purpose of all that we hold dear
Just the we, though time will and has forgot

 

We the Simple Lot
