A prince can call himself a beggar and we all know that it’s a metaphor. It’s an obvious antithesis for him. If I were to say this, it would be a little muddier. You might notice the hole in my sock and my hand me down clothes and wonder if I might really be a beggar. I feel like one sometimes for sure. Especially, when I’m fundraising for a show. I do a lot of thanking, sometimes I feel rich in thanks. But given how it can feel like our gratitude is never adequate, we probably all feel poor in thanks at one time or another, prince or actual beggar.
