Sunday Scribblings prompt is "My first act as Queen/ King of the World will be..."
To be read with a passionate voice!
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!
