Be a Better Princess

I always wondered what is the moral of the story
of ‘The Princess and the Pea’.
Does it sing the ‘virtues’
of being sensitive to even a single pea
under twenty mattresses?

But to have such hyper physical sensitivity
is to be liable to have great personal suffering instead.
Royalty should instead have hyper spiritual sensitivity
towards the great suffering of the commoners, the masses,
so as to better help them, instead of pampering oneself.
