Blue Monarch - Poem by Andy Brookes

She's washing dishes in the sink
where soapy bubbles float.
Her rubber gloves are edged in mink
and ermine trimmed her coat.
Her crown is tidily packed away
Her cloth of gold removed.
Though all alone she feels so gay
Her temper much improved.
Her burdens still a heavy one
For she struggles with her duty,
Sometimes she feels so put upon
She feels she wants to mutiny.
But what you see is all so calm, so beautifully serene
They don't know how hard it is being the bloody queen.

    A nice poem that gives insight into an unseen side of some aristocrats. Adherence to aristocratic mannerisms at all times indeed can be so tiring and trying. A lovely piece written with insight. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
