A Royal Tea Party

by Marina J. Neary

If only the King knew
What the Queen was thinking
When a curly-haired Shepherd Boy
Passed under their windows,
He would tear the crown from her head,
Grab her by the hair
And throw her off the balcony.

The Little Prince would hide
Behind the velvet curtain, stifling his sobs.

And the Shepherd Boy would keep walking
To the tune of his flute.
