3. The Empress – Distance

The prompt for today was “distance.” Luckily, the card was the Empress.

3. The Empress

Upon her throne above the world,
the little people far below

She gazes down with empty eyes,
upon a hill from her chateau

No understanding of the lives
that scurry daily to and fro

No wonder she so little cares
for tiny lives in this tableau

Far beneath her steely gaze
families struggle to get by

They work and slave for daily pay.
there they strive and work and try

And in their homes, they smile and laugh
there they love and live and cry

but even with their hardships sore
there is joy before they die
