Bound To Protocol

I cannot say i envy people of royalty
Since bound to protocol is how they seem to be
They have to be careful on how they behave and on what they do say
What they gain on privileges they lose in another way
Whilst many may envy them their seemingly privileged life
Doubtless they too have their worries and their moments of inner strife
And to live as they please they are not entirely free
They live a restricted life it does seem to me
True enough they have millions of admirers and money and fame
And all of the privileges in life that of one could name
To be born a child of a monarch to many would be a popular choice
But privileges of birthright too does come at a price
That they are bound to protocol one has to agree
And to live as they please they are not truly free.
