San Francisco: Powell & Market Street MUNI terminal entrance/exit. Her Imperial Highness, The Princess Melita Bonaparte, was attempting to do volunteer work, lending her name on behalf of the Grey Gardens of Greece, Tatoi Palace. “It’s in terrible condition, so much in need of restoration as is the Monarchy itself.”
Her selfless efforts were met with an unexpected & life threatening encounter with an escaped elephant, nearly causing her premature demise, and certainly spoiled her fund-raising efforts last weekend. “Funny how the controlled press did not report about this, they don’t care about my Greek relatives & the squalor that has befallen the Tatoi Palace, one of the homes for my Grandparents, Prince & Princess Andrew of Greece. My Grandmother was better known as being Princess Marie Bonaparte. They would both be so sad about the condition of the Palace.”
“I think the elephant is a lineal descendant of those used by Hannibal when he crossed the Alps a few years ago,” mused the still unnerved Bonaparte Heiress.
“It was a crime, a set up–to get rid of me, and keep the Greeks chained to that dysfunctional republic that is forever in debt. They need to put me in charge of things, that’s the best way!”
“If this had happened to Princess Anne, she would have gotten a saddle & ridden it in a horse show! But, Oh, no, the crowd was screaming “Kill! Kill!” Why do they hate me so?”
“Tatoi Palace is my home,” declares Princess Melita Bonaparte
“I want it back!”
