Emperors and Empresses

You are the emperors and empresses

Of far-off lands around the world

Sending your messengers far and wide

And holding the hearts of others in your hands.

 

You are the emperors and empresses

Of the land, sea, and air, in regal dress

Your people follow you

Unquestioningly.

 

You are the emperors and empresses

Of nothing.

Snap, upload, post, like

Cheap filtered views of land, sea, air, and vintage clothing

 

In the land where hearts are clicked and do not beat

The only real connection you experience

Is a battery stretched too long, recharging

When you plug in your phone.
