the curse of royalty

She knew her roles, 
But didn't know 
How she could be 
All of those things; 

For though she showed 
Some aptitudes, 
They were not those 
Of queens or kings, 

But somewhat more like 
Circus clowns; 
A little scary, 
Out of date -- 

She knew what she 
Was s'posed to be; 
But some of us 
Just aren't 

That great
