The Queen’s Rules

Written for:  Poetics Aside #337
Write a persona poem from the perspective of someone (or something) other than yourself.

That young snippy miss
is far too brazen
for a mere visitor.
She must be dismissed

at once, I say.
She is curious and stubborn
when everyone knows
there is only one way.

Where I rule
there are no tea parties
with crazy folk.
I am nobody’s fool.

Off with her head, no delay
off with yours, if you disobey.
Now I am off, eager to play
a outstanding game of croquet.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
