Sunday Scribblings " Queens Subjects"

Click picture to enlarge
Sunday Scribblings prompt is "My first act as Queen/ King of the World will be..."

To be read with a passionate voice!

Queens Subjects

As the Queen of hearts for just one day

I’d mute the adults, while the children play

I’d present a throne speech, to all single fathers and mothers

Inform them that children have seniority above all others

I’d parade distressed kids in droves upon my stage

Let them vent with passion, even endorse their rage

About sexual abuse, violence, bullying and neglect

Substance misuse,and emotions guardians fail to detect

I’d force parents to listen without a chance to respond

Hoping new dedication would coerce old thoughts to abscond

Adults would be exposed to current lyrics the full day long

Then quizzed about everything youth knows to be wrong

I'd trust parents would be enlightened and able to concur

That the songs being sung reflect a world that’s obscure

I’d compel folks to atone by serving their children’s needs

Reminding them to thwart their plans when self-interest impedes

To live as though under a microscope of detection

Where all their actions are emulated in their child’s reflection

One free pass of forgiveness liable parents could conceive

Upon restitution of stability and a refuge, where children can believe

Oh but I am the eccentric Queen of numerous extreme dreams

My very first act is to hush our turbulent worlds screams!

I am doing a deep curtsy before you oh Queen
Your words as always grip the soul with such meaning
You get to the heart of every matter
If only we could encourage your coronation!
XOXOXO
