The Antoinette Ball

R.S.V.P -  Third Estate

Dear Marie Antoinette,

        We will not be coming to your ball. While it is lovely for you to finally consider us, we all have jobs we have already prescribed to. You see, we all have to pay taxes. The chunks of our paychecks that are untimely funding this party. We do not have time to spare. Unless you wish to be broke, we must to continue working. This wouldn't be a problem if the other estates had to pay as well. There are people in this estate that do not have homes. While we, the ones writing this letter, happen to be lucky enough to own land; all of us will rarely ever have time for such things as your parties. Now you must excuse us, we all have better things to do.

                                                                                    Sincerely,

                                                                     Everyone else (better known as your slaves)
