Off With The Head by Debarun Sarkar

The queen must speak like a queen
so she was taught from childhood.
Words and phrases must hold strength
she was told.

She remembered clearly when she was young
the phrase “off with the head” resulted in immediate
results and actions unlike the tea party crowd
forever throwing around riddles in conversations
and fooling people.

At least she was honest she believed,
unlike the crowd at the tea party.
