putting on rags

stripped of the world
any trappings of power,
of position, of station
putting on rags
joy in wearing
falling to our knees
washing their feet
the plates of the banquet
putting on rags
of a slave, a servant
living a life
that is more in serving

calls to mind image of Dobby
from Harry Potter movies,
especially his joy at getting a sock
