I've never been personally obsessed with royalty
but the news of William and Kate is all around me.
I'm (again) wondering what the heck is so fascinating?
Why exactly makes their life story so scintillating?
Is it merely that ladies all dream of having Cinderella's life?
Would the majority trade it all to become a Prince's wife?
Perhaps many merely desire friendship with the couple.
I wish all our socializing party skills were that supple!
I can see the locals being proud of their dynasty,
but I live in the land that rejected the monarchy.
We've got the Kennedys, Fords and the stars of Hollywood.
Perhaps we'd vote them kings and queens if we could.
Or is it the allure of all the glitz, glamor and bling?
Personally, I'd be nervous to wear Princess Di's ring.
Don't you think that beautiful thing might be cursed?
Oh well. I'm sure on it's history Kate is well versed.
Perhaps this romance-mystery-thriller trifecta possibility
is what makes the royal life drama more exciting to see.
Whatever it is, I admit I'll probably take a peek...
hoping to see some royalty obsessed freak.
Honestly, though, I wish the bride and groom a happy day
and I hope no psychotic people get in the way.
Please don't hate me for wanting to study this obsession.
Perhaps, on me, you did make an impression.
