Flawed Royalty

You sit on your
Blue festooned
Height
And throw
Green studs
At me.
Your venom
Will only glance
Off me
For your venom
Is my venom
Directed at you.
 
I am like you
Littered together
Bones
Flesh
And blood.
But your
Blood is blue
Mine is red.
 
Red and sticky
The sweat of
My forefather
Whose ignorant
And misplaced
Servitude
Could only be
Rivaled by
His sense of
Duty and history
 
Yes
My blood is
Red
With the mortgaged
Dignity of the
Slave woman
Who bore
Me
Insanely tearing
Me
From the depths
Of her
Plundered body
Delirious
With the pain
Of her
Humiliation.
 
Yours is blue
Inky blue
Untainted sapphire
 
And yet
We are one
You
White and blue
Me
Coloured and red
Of the same stock
Royal and flawed
 

*From my roving mind, this is what my muse came up with today.
