Two Princes – Part II

Their prince was washed-up*
blue-dead on a shore
Our prince was dressed in
quilt-coat against frore

Each to inherit
a lop-sided crown
One with dominion
one laid out on ground

Parentage traced back
both to migrant shifts
One poor prince noble
one plush prince adrift

The meek shall ne’er
gain this boundaried land
The enthroned will rule
with their blue-washed hands
